'Saying 'Yes' to God'

St. Katherine Drexel

Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

- Mark 10:24

The kingdom of God is God's presence with us, uniting us as one family. We cannot earn this gift. All we have to do is accept it. God respects our freedom, so he never forces any of his gifts on us. He simply offers them and then waits for our yes. Unfortunately, we can always say no.

The rich man in today's gospel said no. He couldn't let go of his riches, so he lost the kingdom. This gospel invites you to ask two questions. First, are there any choices you are making that keep you from being a part of the kingdom? Second, what are the choices that are enabling you to be a part of the kingdom right now? Helping those in need, appreciating God's gifts, listening for God's guidance in quiet prayer: these are all choices that bring us into God's kingdom.

Lord, may my response to you always be yes!

- Fr. Kenneth Grabner, C.S.C.

I often think of God's''kingdom'' as His 'eternal' kingdom. You reminded me that I already am part of that kingdom and his Presence is all around us. Thank you Lord and thank you Father Grabner

Today and hopefully every day I will be more aware of the kingdom of God. Thank you for those simple but powerful words Fr.
