God’s Grace is Enough

Readings for July 7 — 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Ez 2:2-5; Ps 123:1-2, 2, 3-4; 2 Cor 12:7-10; Cf. Lk 4:18; Mk 6:1-6 

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • When have you experienced the Holy Spirit “setting you on your feet”? How did you know it was the Holy Spirit calling you? Once you were on your feet, where did God send you?
  • Recall a time in your life when God’s “grace was sufficient” to see you through difficulties. When has your own weakness allowed God’s strength to show?
  • What do you think it was like for Jesus to be rejected in his hometown? What do you think it means that he was not able to do any mighty deeds there? Have there been times in your life when you’ve felt rejected? Do these times help you feel closer to God?
