CHARITY IN FAITHThe Good News is more than words. It is about a person, Jesus the Christ. Jesus makes the Good News concrete by His words and actions. For this reason, to spread the gospel, we need the signs that those who do not have faith in Jesus can recognize. These signs would of course include the works of charity and compassion. But beyond works of compassion, the greatest gift we can give is the gift of faith. Proclaiming the Good News that falls short of giving the faith is to shortchange our recipients. This is because we fight shy of sharing the source of all our gifts.

ENSURING THAT WE DO NOT LOSE JESUS AND OUR LOVED ONES If we want to ensure that we never lose our loved ones or our Lord, we must take heed of what the Lord is saying to us. “The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.” Only lovers can hear the voice of the beloved. If we are to be one with Jesus and be His sheep, then only love for the Lord will enable us to respond effectively to His call and His voice. If there is no love, the voice would not be heard.

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
