Learning About Yourself Through Faith

Readings for Sunday, March 3, 2019 — Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sirach 27:4-7; Psalm 92: 2-3, 13-16; 1 Corinthians 15: 54-58; Luke 6: 39-45

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • The best way to truly get to know someone is to see how they speak and what comes out of their mouths. When has there been a time where you realized someone’s true self after they spoke? Were you disappointed? Did it change your mind about them?
  • The first letter to the Corinthians talks about how those who are devoted to the Lord will have victory over death. When have you felt victorious because of your faith in God?
  • Jesus tells us to not be superior to one another and to check yourself before giving your advice to others. When was there a time in your life that you felt you should have looked at yourself and what you were doing before helping others? How do you get to know yourself better? Where do you think you are in the stages of getting to know yourself, and how does your faith help you with the journey?
