How can you be a good example to children around you? - Daily Bible Reflections March 22, 2017


 
CHILDREN SEE,
CHILDREN DO
 
“But teach them to your children and to your children’s children...” – Deuteronomy 4:9
 
      When I meet parents for coaching, I share with them a life lesson I learned from my sister, a preschool teacher: “Our kids pick up from our actions more than we realize.”
       There’s a video of five-year-old toddlers following every move of their adult companion.
       When mom litters, daughter litters.
       Dad curses clerk, son curses clerk.
       Driving mom gives a dirty finger, son gives a dirty finger.
       Dad raises hand at mom, son raises hand at baby.
       Children see, children do.
       The good side of this is that children learn good things the same way. They learn kindness, respect, forgiveness, humility, caring, love, happiness, celebration, confidence, persistence, aspiration when they see you do it.
       Whatever we know to be good, to be true, to be kind, to be loving, let’s do it even in the simplest way. Smile. Greet good morning. Say thank you. Clean as you go. Let others pass through before you.
  Because what people see, people do. Edwin S. Soriano (edwin@winningcoaching.net)
 
Reflection:How can you be a good example to children around you?
 
Lord, as Your child, let me show Your love through my actions.
 
St. Nicholas Owen, pray for us.

Reflection:“Don’t let your trials blow you down; let them lift you up.” (Woodrow Kroll) - Daily Bible Reflections March 15, 2017


 
KEEP YOUR FOCUS
 
“And they will condemn him to death, and hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified.” – Matthew 20:18, 19
 
         I was on the way to Batangas to pick up my 12-year-old son from his summer youth camp. The highway was almost empty because it was a Sunday and Manny Pacquiao also had a boxing match that morning. The skies were clear, the radio played good music and the scenery was peaceful. It was such a relaxing drive that that I missed my toll exit. I had no choice but to take the next exit a few kilometers away to make a U-turn. I lost time and money because I got too comfortable.
        I changed my attitude as I reentered the highway. This time, I was more alert so I wouldn’t miss the right exit. I arrived at the campsite only a few minutes late.
       It’s the same with our lives. Sometimes, we forget to focus and we get lost when life gets too comfortable.
        If you experience trials and life seems hard, simply be alert and focus on Jesus so you may reach your destination. Jesus also experienced difficulties. He was persecuted, mocked, scourged and crucified. Yet He remained focused on His mission so that we may receive the gift of salvation. Alvin Fabella (alvinfabella@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection:“Don’t let your trials blow you down; let them lift you up.” (Woodrow Kroll)
 
Lord Jesus, thank You for showing me the way. You experienced trials and difficulties to save us.

“You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin… Take no revenge and cherish no grudge… You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Leviticus 19:16,18 - Daily Bible Reflections March 6, 2017


NEGATRONS
 
“You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin… Take no revenge and cherish no grudge… You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Leviticus 19:16,18
 
     I have a confession to make. I’m a certified nutcase for this phenomenal love team the country was gaga over a year ago. Well, not to the extent of joining a fans club or following them to location shoots or collecting all the magazines with their faces on them. I just stalk them on social media.
         It’s appalling to see how bashers and haters are so filled with envy that they’d do anything to try and bring this love team down. They pose as fake fans to spread rumors and incite negative comments. Loyal fans call them negatrons. Clearly, they are minions of the dark side.
         I find it admirable how the love team and the enlightened members of the fandom deal with these negative people. They take no revenge and just encourage each other to spread good vibes. This is what makes the love team and their “nation” truly phenomenal. And this is how God wants us to love others, negatrons or otherwise. Lella M. Santiago (lellams88@gmail.com)
 
Reflection:You have a choice in dealing with negative people. You can either spread good vibes or make yourself miserable like them.
 
Help me to follow Your code of conduct, Lord, and not give in to the negativity around me.
 
St. Mary Ann of Jesus of Paredes, pray for us.

When you’re generous in sharing your gifts without expecting anything in return, you leave God to recompense you with His abundance - Daily Bible Reflections November 16, 2016


TRUSTED ONE
 
“Well done, good servant! You have been faithful in this very small matter; take charge of ten cities.” – Luke 19:17
 
       As the only representative of the Philippines in the Asian federation of extreme sports, I was tasked to organize a technical committee to choose team members for an upcoming championship. I invited some of my friends who were pillars of the sport, but only a few were willing to give their services without monetary compensation.
       That’s why Mike stood out. I told him we wouldn’t get anything from this event aside from the prestige of bringing the team to represent our country. He said he was willing to help without pay. What he said stuck in my mind because I like people who work with passion and not for money.
       So when I was asked to give a recommendation for an international official for the biggest Asian Extreme Sports event in Thailand, I gave Mike’s name. I was confident that he could do the job since I had found him faithful in small matters.
       Mike, the team and I flew to Phuket and represented our country in the tournament. He was even given a five-figure honorarium for his services as an international official and is still being tapped to officiate in local and foreign events. Monty Mendigoria (montymendigoria@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: When you’re generous in sharing your gifts without expecting anything in return, you leave God to recompense you with His abundance.
 
Lord, let Your goodness flow through me. Make me a channel of blessings for others. Amen.
 
St. Margaret of Scotland, pray for us.
