FEBRUARY 17: SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Blessings and curses. The first half of this pair is always wonderful; the second half is worrisome. Many times it is obvious why God curses someone or something: the serpent encourages Eve to disobey, the fig tree will not bear fruit, the wicked lead others astray. But why curse those who trust in other people, those who have plenty or those who laugh? It is important to see the context. In Jeremiah, God is not cursing a husband who trusts in his spouse or a child who trusts in her parent. Those who are cursed are those who turn away from the Lord. and put their trust in fallible creatures. Jesus notices that some have more than enough while others suffer from want. Some turn a blind eye to others' misery. These people will have difficult futures. Jesus turns the world upside down. Those enjoying riches, happiness, and fame will have their success crumble. Those suffering from hunger, poverty, and derision will be rewarded in the end. This is the paradoxical nature of the kingdom of God. After all, this is the kingdom that Saint Paul refers to in the second reading, the kingdom to which Jesus ascended in the greatest reversal of all: by dying as a criminal on the cross, he was raised to eternal glory. Jeremiah, Paul and Jesus all call us to transform our lives. We can do this by changing our perspective. To use Paul's words, we are called not for this life only, but for eternal life with God.
