THE WAY TO POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS PEACE The two primary causes of division in the world come from politics and religious rivalry. Yet, the world cannot do without politics. Often, religion is used by politics to gain power. Vice versa, there are some in religion who use politics to gain religious power. Whichever is the case, it brings disharmony in the country. What is the way out of such division in religion and politics? If all of us accept the gospel of peace that Jesus came to offer us, there will be peace and unity.

THE MIND OF A MARTYR Many think they are dying for the love of God but in truth they are dying for an ideology. How do we know? If we die for the love of God, it should also be for the love of humanity. If we love God, we will also love our fellowmen. Only those whose love is expressed in non-violence, truly die for the love of God.

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.
