John 6:44-51

No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life.

I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

Who are our teachers?

They shall all be taught by God.

Jesus was a master teacher and he was passionate about his subject. He loved teaching about God: the goodness of God, the power of God, the love of God, the forgiving nature of God, the existence of God, As I reflect on how I am living my life I can ask myself, “Who or what am I allowing to be my teachers today? Do I allow hate and resentment to be my teacher or love and forgiveness? Do I allow the negative messages of the world to be my teacher or do I allow the hope that God promises to teach me. Ignatius reminds us that everything can help us to get closer to God. Therefore, I can use everything to teach me to love God more deeply.

Who or what is teaching me today?

Prayer

Lord Jesus, you taught us through your words and actions, and you continue to teach us through the people, places, and experiences of our everyday lives.  Help us to be open to your lessons so that we may grow deeper relationship with you and our brothers and sisters. We ask this in your name. Amen.
