DG Book

Gospel: Luke 17:7-10
Who among you would say to your servant, coming in from the fields after plowing
or tending sheep, ‘Go ahead and have your dinner’? No, you tell him, ‘Prepare my
dinner. Put on your apron, and wait on me while I eat and drink. You

can eat and drink afterward.’ Do you thank this servant for doing what you told him to do? I don’t
think so. And therefore, when you have done all that you have been told to do, you should say,
‘We are no more than servants; we have only done our duty.’”

Reflect:

A few years ago, a 27-year old man, Raphael Samuel, sued his parents for having given birth to
him without his consent. He believed he had the right not to be born! Ultimately, it is all about
claiming one’s rights, even when the claims are an insult to intelligence. But don’t we make
similar, if not the same, claims before God? It is as if God owed us something. Peter asked
Jesus: “We have left everything for you; What do we get?” James and John claimed the right
to sit on his right and left. We conveniently forget that essentially, we are creatures and it is we
who owe God. If God has upgraded us to the status of his sons and daughters, it is an act of
pure grace. As Paul delightfully announces: “Now the grace of God has appeared.” We do not
merit this grace; it is generously given.
