Carry the gospel with you

Gospel reading of the day:

John 10:27-30

Jesus said: “My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.”

Reflection on the gospel reading: Today’s gospel passage uses the metaphor of sheep who hear, recognize, and follow the shepherd’s voice and by means of that voice, remain safe. Jesus, of course, is the shepherd, and as the shepherd, he is our way, truth, and life. The course he sets for us may not always be evident, but if we listen for his voice and follow it, we will be safe.

Spiritual reading: Everyone who wills can hear the inner voice. It is within everyone. (Mahatma Ghandi)
