A Reflection on The Choices We Make Matt. 7:12-14 By Deacon David Hockwalt

The Choices We Make. This gospel is about choices. The choice to live a life of their pagan occupiers or according to Jewish law and faith. They faced dilemmas whether to pay the Roman tax or be tied to the temple. Whether to acknowledge Caesar or Herod is King. Whether to separate themselves culturally or to embrace the Roman way of life. Jesus is pointing out that choices have consequences, good and bad. The harder choice is the better choice, the narrow road that leads to God. What are the parallels of ancient life and our life today?

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012. He continues in active ministry today and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team.

We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this reflection. Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this reflection will help us all better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness. We want to come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me and holy is His Name!
