The themes of the readings are that we need to take time to get to know the people in our lives because the apostles had to get to know Jesus better while he was alive to tell about him after he had died.
From this reading i learned how important people really are and that we always need people in our lives whether we want them or not. We have to be open and accepting to everyone so that we can be accepted by them too.
If i were asked to give a reflection on the readings i would want to focus on forgiving people for the wrong that they may have done to you and try to see things from their point of view. People will always do you wrong, but becoming angry and not listening to them will not help make you feel better. We have to talk our issues with people out or they will never be solved.
