My head You have anointed with oil.

"God does not see as man sees: man looks at appearances but the Lord looks at the heart." (1 Samuel 16: 7).

Sunday 22nd March 2020 of the 4th week of Lent.

How does man see?
#1 Jesse, father of David and his sons see David as insignificant shepherd boy. God sees David as a man after His heart, a future champion and king of Israel.

#2 The Jewish leaders saw Jesus as the stone they rejected but God saw Jesus as the Corner Stone of the Kingdom He was building.

#3 Jacob’s ten sons saw their brother Joseph as a master dreamer and a nuisance. God saw Joseph as the future Prince of Egypt whom He would use to save His people in Egypt.

#4 The Jewish leaders saw Peter as unlettered and uncultured fisherman. God saw Peter as the Prince of the Apostles on whose Confession of faith He plans to build His world-wide Church.

#5 The Jewish elite saw Mary Magdalene as a high class prostitute. Jesus saw her as key member of His Church, an Evangelist whom He entrusted the message of His Resurrection to the Apostles.

My friend, how do people see you? A little fish in the pond? Far more important is how God sees you. By virtue of your Baptism, God sees you as His adopted son or daughter and has infinite love for you. He has promised you eternal bliss with Him where you will enjoy a life that no eye has seen, no ear has heard of and totally beyond the imagination of man to contemplate.

To discover your identity in Jesus, soak yourself in Sacred Scripture every day. Do not neglect prayer and Holy Communion.

My head you have anointed with oil; my cup is overflowing. The Lord is my shepherd: there is nothing I shall want.
