Reflections GOSPEL: Matthew 10:26-33

As Jesus prepares the apostles for their mission, he challenges them to face persecution with courage. They are to announce the reign of God by shouting it from the housetops. They are to proclaim in public the truths he has revealed to them in private. Their enemies may harm the disciples’ bodies. But their souls are safe in God’s hands. Jesus insists that God loves us so much that God has counted every hair on our heads! And God is stronger than all our enemies put together.

1.) Not many of us literally shout our faith from the housetops. Do you speak about your faith with family and friends? Have you shared your faith in any way with others?

2.) Why should this reading give us confidence? How does it help us face the hard things in life?illness, suffering, even death? There is a Gospel song based on this passage. It is called, “His Eye is on the Sparrow (and I know he watches me).” It is beautiful—try to find it!
