Gospel – 6/21/20 – Matthew 10:26-33
Jesus said to the Twelve:
“Fear no one.
Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed,
nor secret that will not be known.
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light;
what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul;
rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna.
Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin?
Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge.
Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others
I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others,
I will deny before my heavenly Father.”
Heads up guys. You can’t do anything – anywhere – that God doesn’t know. Why would we try to keep that secret? The World punishes us physically and we fear that.
But God can punish the building made with hands and the building made eternal.
So, if you do something – admit it. Take the punishment the World metes out.
Far better to suffer here than after.
At least that’s what I heard Him say…
