THE BARGAIN

“Stay awake, because you do not know either the day or the hour.” – Matthew 25:13

As early as high school, Jed felt a calling to the priesthood. He was young, handsome, bright and popular, but even so, he made a bargain with God. He promised that at the age of 30, the same age when Jesus’ ministry began, he would consecrate his life to God.
Years passed, and with his promise always in mind, he made the best of his “freedom” by doing everything that made life exciting. He worked hard. He traveled. He partied. And he tried everything at least once.
The life he was living took a toll on him. When he came back home, he was very sick. At the age of 30, he did give up his life to God, not through consecration but by death.
I know that Jed found peace with God after he went through a lot of remorse and anguish. His experience should remind us to check our own priorities and how we are living our call.
Every day that we live is a gift that should be used wisely. Would Death find us ready when he comes knocking at our door?Cecil Lim (cez_lim@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
“Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.” (St. Ignatius of Loyola)

Lord, if Your people need me, I will not refuse the work. Your will be done. (St. Martin de Tours)
