MATTHEW 9:14-17 GOSPEL READING AND REFLECTION (JULY 4, 2020)

Then the disciple of John came to him with the question, “How is it that we and the Pharisees fast on many occasions, but not your disciples?”

Jesus answered to them, “How could you expect wedding guest to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The time will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then, they will fast.

No one patches and old coat with a piece of  unshrunken cloth, for the patch will shrink and tear an even bigger hole in the coat. In the same way, you don’t put new wind into old wine skins. If you do, the wine skins will burst and the wine will be spilt. No, you put new wine into fresh skins; then are preserved.

POINTS OF REFLECTION

When Jesus said “How could you expect wedding guest to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them?”,This  teaches us that abundance is with Him. Though such abundance was partial and momentary, it is right and proper for man to have so much desire of similar abundance in heaven.

For us human to achieve this desire, we need to be in conformity with the lord. We need to embrace what God wants us to become rather than forcing what we want from Him.

As Jesus had said “put the new wine into the fresh skins” is telling us that to have a new life with Him must come with a change in a new desire that matches with this new life so as not to spoil the whole about life.
