FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
‘Let Us Move On’
JOB 7: 1-4, 6-7 • 1 COR 9: 16-19, 22-23 • MK 1: 29-39
T
here is no satisfactory answer as to why bad things
happen to good people. We can be as good as we can
be yet we will are still plagued by misfortune, illness,
and heartache. This galls us. Many times we end up
wondering, “Why me? What did I ever do?” Because there is
no good answer and because most of the time we do not
deserve the bad things that happen to us, we either become
angry, give up on life, or curse the Lord and turn our backs on
Him. It is not unusual for people to quit attending church
when really bad things happen.
It pained Jesus that people’s interest in Him was not in His
message but rather in His healing power. He had wanted to
convince people that the reign of God was at hand by using the
power of God to heal. Frustrating and perhaps defeating, all
people really wanted was to be healed without the message.
Our readings point us to three individuals who were absolutely
undeserving of their circumstances.
Their stories call to mind some of the
difficult moments of our own lives
when, despite our best efforts,
everything goes against us.
Our readings offer us a bit of spiritual wisdom.
Many of us have people as part of our lives who use us without a
care about who we are and what we stand for. We too can be
merely the giver of goods and fulfiller of needs without being
appreciated for who and what we are.
JOB
“He has the patience of Job.” This
familiar old saying is odd because Job
had no patience. Job did not remain
silent and accepting. He fought back.
Despite despondency and anger
however, he did not give up on God.
Rather than talking about the patience
of Job we should talk about the
faithfulness of Job. Sometimes all we
can do is stay faithful. Job found his
peace precisely as a result of his
faithfulness.
Everyone has heard of Job, the man for
whom everything that could go wrong
did go wrong. Job, through no fault of
his own, lost his wife and children, his
farm, his wealth and his reputation. He
was at times very despondent about his
fate and cursed the day he was born
believing he would be better off dead
Paul remained committed to faith no
than living in such misery. At other
matter the cost. He believed in Jesus’
times he was angry that he was being
message despite its demands, and
constantly victimized although he
rather than allowing himself to feel
never knew why. His friends thought
My days are swifter than a weaver’s
burdened by it, Paul made his role as
he must have brought misfortune upon
shuttle; they come to an end without hope. messenger, not his success or reputation,
himself by sinning; however, Job was
his source of joy. Success and
a good and righteous man and wholly undeserving of his
reputation are not the source of our joy. Our joy is in the fact that
misfortunes.
we are called to be with God. We can endure any attack on our
person if our focus is on God’s call and not on our reputation.
We have all been in Job’s shoes to one degree or another. We too
have been undeserving of many of our heartaches. And, we have
felt that God has remained silent and uncaring about our fate.
We read from Paul who had been joyfully preaching about how to
live the life of Jesus. Unfortunately it meant telling people that
they must make serious changes in lifestyles and religious
practices. Not wanting to change, opponents, instead of debating
the issues directly, called into question Paul’s authority and
character. Paul was forced to fight to prove his authority and
worthiness as an apostle.
Like Paul it sometimes has been our fate to have spoken the truth
only to be subjected to abuse and name-calling because we dared
to tell someone the truth. The abuse can make us afraid to be
truthful again.
It is Jesus who shows us true spiritual wisdom. He went off to a
lonely place and became absorbed in prayer. We too must turn to
prayer. What happens when we pray? Prayer helps us remember
and helps us focus. In prayer we call to mind who God is and who
we are. This can keep us from getting lost in self-pity. Calling to
mind who God is helps us remember that God is never the cause of
pain and suffering; He is the source of peace and comfort in the
midst of suffering. How else could Jesus have hung from a cross?
Jesus did what He could and then with joy He told His disciples,
“Let us move on.” Indeed, despite the worst that life can
sometimes deliver, we too must move on with the endurance and
faithfulness of Job, the joy of Paul, and with comfort in the
knowledge that though God is sometimes quiet, God the Lord
always walks with us.
