Mark 9:41-50

2003-619big

“ANYONE WHO GIVES YOU A CUP OF WATER TO DRINK BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO Christ, AMEN I SAY TO YOU, WILL SURELY NOT LOSE HIS REWARD.” 

“GI” as in Good Influence and not BI as in Bad Influence, is the challenge of Jesus to his disciples.

He reminds them of doing things, not to be temptations for others to sin, but for others to do good. Moreover, they should not lose their effectiveness in proclaiming the Good News.

They are to give examples so that they will also receive the goodness of God.

St. Francis said, “It is in giving that we receive.”

May we become GIs or  God’s Influence to others.
