Reflections GOSPEL: Matthew 11:25-30

At the beginning of today’s gospel, we hear Jesus’ hymn of praise to the Father. He is closer to the Father than anyone has ever been or ever will be. In fact, he is one with the Father. Jesus is both God and man.

Jesus assures us that he is “gentle and humble of heart.” This gentleness is not weakness, but the strength to accept us as we are, as well as the strength to help and save us. Jesus tells us that we are to be like him in this gentleness and humility. This does not mean being a pushover. It means being patient with and respectful to others, being a peacemaker, as Jesus was. It means accepting others as they are and trying to help them become even better.

1.) What does being humble mean? Hint: The word humble comes from the Latin word humus, meaning “earth.” What do we mean when we say someone is “down to earth”? That is what humility is! It is the opposite of snobby, and a great compliment. Why?

2.) How will you be humble today? How will you be gentle to yourself and others?
