Treating Others How You Want to Be Treated

Readings for Sunday, February 24, 2019 — Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

1 Samuel 26:2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-23; Psalm 103: 1-4, 8, 10, 12-13; 1 Corinthians 15: 45-49; Luke 6: 27-38

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • David was in the perfect position to kill Saul, but he did not. When were times in your own life when you felt you were tempted to do something wrong but something held you back? What were some of the things that held you back in the end?
  • In the first letter to the Corinthians, it talks about how the first man was earthly and the second man is heavenly. People start off earthly and eventually become heavenly. What do you think we can do to help the process of becoming heavenly?
  • Jesus tells us to be kind to everyone, especially those who are our enemies and mistreat us. No matter what they do, we should never try to retaliate. How have you tried to be kind to someone even after they treated you badly? Does it come naturally to you or does it take effort to try to behave this way?
