Jesus sends His disciples , to go and heal the people in trouble, to console the ones who are sorrowful , to proclaim the good news , the gospel of love . The disciples listen to the Master they set out on the way of love, do the good deeds , there and as well as it can be done .
It is good to be good ! Not only the world will become a better place in the company of a good man, but the man himself walking on the way of goodness , love will also be filled by joy, light , will glow . You cannot light your brother’s light so that the flame of it will not light up your face as well. If you walk together with Christ on the way of love , you may get tired , but you’ll not burn out , become dull, or like a squeezed orange fall by the wayside ! It is the heartless work that kills the spirit , the  enthusiastic work taken on out of love will build the spirit !! 
The disciples on their return home after the holy work assigned to them by Christ cutting short each other, are telling how much has God done through them ! I like to imagine the face of our redeeming God , as He stand up with open arms and praying joyfully this way :""I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants ! The Creator looking with proud joys at His creation.! If I could draw , I would  most certainly draw the picture of Christ looking up at His disciples with love and delight !
Praise God I also had the opportunity to look up with proud joy at our grown up , clever children . That is why I am proclaiming loudly that it is good to be good ! To get going on the way shown by Jesus Christ , it is good to teach our children , students to be good and it is very good when we  see  our grownup children the way they progress with proud joy on  the way of their successful, fruitful lives ! It is good to be woken up in the early hours of dawn by the ringing phone and receive such good news , nice pictures: “ Hi grandad my name is Kovács Anna Hajnalka, I weigh 3500 grams ,I am 60 cm long . We fought for our life , we are well and we are very proud of ourselves . “ Your daughter Anna Maria .
May God bless the newborn babes and the mothers who give them life ! I greet lovingly all our former children , who walk on the way of love , who decided by life and in a marriage accepted the gift of a child , living  their lives happily , cheerfully ! May God grant that we are woken by such good news every dawn! 
A happy grandfather ,

The Word of God
At that time Jesus said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
Matthew 11:25-27
