THE MERCIFUL LOVE OF THE FATHER Even before we love Him, He has already loved us. Even before we make ourselves worthy for the reward of eternal life, He has already given it to us. God loves us all, irrespective of who we are. He wants all to be in His kingdom. His love excludes no one. Even if we come in at the last hour, His door is always open. The truth is that we are all to a certain or greater extent, the 11th hour worker. We all stand to merit God’s extraordinary goodness.

GRACE AS THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM We all know very well that responding to the Word is not something that we can simply will. By our efforts alone, we cannot receive the Good News into our lives. The truth of life is that everything is grace. But if the mystery of the Kingdom is a mystery of grace, then does it mean that there is nothing we can do to make the Kingdom a reality in our lives? Are we condemned to live in resignation to whatever situation we find ourselves in?

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.
