Daily Readings: Deuteronomy 4:1, 5-9, Matthew 5:17-19

Moses must teach the people of Israel all the God-given statutes and ordinances they must obey. Obedience to God is a prerequisite to entering and occupying the land. They qualify their obedience. It must be meticulous. This will help them display their wisdom and discernment among the other people. No other nation has a God like the God of Israel. No other nation has such beautifully fixed statutes and ordinances.

Moses warns them not to forget any of the statutes. They also have the responsibility to make them aware of their children and their children’s children. This text prompts an immediate examination of conscience about the kind of relationship we have with our God. The text demands that we respond. How do we express our allegiance to God? Are we serious about maintaining a good rapport with God? We have to learn to count on our blessings!

What is Jesus' attitude toward the law or the prophets? Jesus indeed broke the Sabbath law to give life to the sick and suffering. Therefore, the people of his time think that Jesus has come to abolish the law and the prophets, but Jesus tells them that he has come to fulfill them. The Holy Scriptures refer to laws and prophets.

Jesus is the Divine Word. He is the Word of God. One has to be overcautious about breaking the commandments. We can't even afford to break one of them. In the kingdom of heaven, the one who breaks will be considered the least. Those who follow them diligently and teach them to others will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  Moses not only followed these commandments but also taught them to his people. He earns the title of lawgiver.

Call to Action for Catholic Living: Jesus, the Word of God, fulfills the entire Holy Scripture. He is the only one who can also bring our lives to fulfillment, provided we are open to him and welcome him as our unique savior. Are we willing to do that?


Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
