Reflection on Luke 12:8-12 ~
When you must put yourself in front of others for God, know that you are embraced and loved by the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Trust and believe in yourself and in what Julian of Norwich says that “all will be well.” It is normal if prior to the experience you require silence, conversation, prayer, interior purgation and possibly restitution (to feel whole). For some it is best to always be ready. Do not fear, because the Holy Spirit’s love and peace will fill you with courage and wisdom.
Luke 12 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
8 “And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; 9 but whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. 10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. 11 When they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say.”
Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 12:8-12.
