Who could ever fathom God? The mind of God knows all things. Our future is history for God. We should listen to the Words of God, ponder on the words and live the Word of God. In the letter to the Romans, St. Paul explains that the works of God are irrevocable; hence, the call of God in our lives is unchangeable. But if we decide to move away from God that could be possible because God has given us freedom and we have a choice either to remain in the call or move out of God’s call. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Is 55:8-9). This explanation is elaborated in the Gospel proclamation. Jesus has given us food for thought. It is not a literal meaning about who our invitees should be, but a lesson we should take to heart. This is unconditional love. We find it difficult to understand God’s ways because we operate in a conditional world.
Prayer: Abba Father, change me to think and act unconditionally. Amen.
