365. It could look like this



Jesus seems to be more severe than Paul, when he speaks to some people:
“Woe to you, scribes and pharisees, you hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings.” Matthew, chapter 23, verse 13

Jesus doesn’t say, “I will make you unhappy,” but if we follow his reasoning well, it could look like this: “You will become unhappy, since you do not open your heart to the presence of God and for that reason you don’t allow others to go through the door of the Kingdom of Heaven. You don’t offer them an opening, you do not allow them to feed themselves. They are waiting at the door and you’re not talking about Jesus, the Love of God, the importance of being united to the Trinity.”

Let’s continue to let Jesus enter our hearts so that he can touch the hearts of others. May Jesus pass totally into our lives, then into the heart of who seeks him.
