DG BookGospel: Mark 2:13-17
When Jesus went out again, beside the lake, a crowd came to him, and he taught them. As he walked along, he
saw a tax collector sitting in his office. This was Levi, the son of Alpheus. Jesus said to him, “Follow me!” And Levi got up
and followed him. And it so happened that, when Jesus was eating in Levi’s house, tax collectors and sinners sat with

him and his disciples; there were a lot of them, and they used to follow Jesus. But Pharisees, men educated in the law, when they saw
Jesus eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does your master eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?”
Jesus heard them, and answered, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor, but sick people do. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

 

Reflection:

 

One of the best exercises for a healthy body is daily walk.
American Heart Association recommends doing 10,000 steps
a day. Being seated or stationary for long hours is unhealthy. The
same applies for spiritual health as well. There is much movement
in today’s gospel. Jesus “went out,” the crowds “came in,”
Jesus “was walking.” But in the midst of all, Levi was “seated.”
Jesus wants him on his feet. “Follow me,” he tells him. Levi
gets up and follows him, and becomes a different man! You
cannot follow someone while seated. Following means giving
up one’s fixed stances, attitudes, beliefs, and practices and being
on the feet risking a journey into new and unchartered territories,
walking behind the one who matters most. Do at least 10,000
steps a day behind Jesus and your spiritual health will be fine.
