December 16 - Reflection of the day
It seems that tax collectors had a very bad image during the times of Jesus. But even they had recognized the will of God. There is, thus, no obstacle to the love of God. There are people who think that they are not worthy of God's welcoming love. That is true: no one deserves such a glory and honor. And yet each one of us, just because we are the children of God, regardless of our position in life or even how good or bad we are, possesses this enormous dignity. The path to God's love is open to all.
Do you sometimes think you cannot get close to God because you have done something that is not so great,or because you feel you are not who you should be? Have you really felt that you are the beloved child of God?
