Luke 17:7-10 Reflection – Mercy Within Unconditional Love

Reflection on Luke 17:7-10 ~

Have you begun to feel compelled to give without any expectation? If so you are in the dawn of accepting God’s love emerging from within to become, do, and be this love. Perhaps you are putting many other human desires aside to please God, still knowing you have a very long way to go. To continue to grow by accepting the reality of pleasing Trinity within, attracts us to move toward those that have yet to know mercy’s unconditional love.

Luke 17  New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

“Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here at once and take your place at the table’? Would you not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink’? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, ‘We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!’”

Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 17:7-10.
