Daily Bible Reflections - June 2, 2012


Shut Down for God
 
To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to bring you faultless and joyful before his glorious presence. – Jude 24
 
Years ago, there was an amazing story in the newspaper entitled “Motel Chain Shuts Down for God.” It was about Wyden King, chairman of Anito, a popular motel chain. It served as a site for lovers’ trysts for decades. The story said that the business had 11,000 customers and brought in as much as P2 million a day. Yet Mr. King decided to close it down because God told him to!
According to the news item, God ordered him to stop expanding in 1994, but it took a long time for him to obey. “I was blinded by money, but it took the grace of the Lord to open my eyes…. Yet it was a struggle to let go,” he was quoted as saying.
We all have our own struggles against things we know are wrong yet are so tempting and delightful to the flesh. For
some it may be cigarettes. Or a married lover. Or an under-the-table deal.
Sometimes, like Wyden, it takes years for us to do what is right. Don’t despair. Just ask God to hold on to you. He will guide you back into His presence. Lella Santiago (mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
What are you holding on to that is keeping you from enjoying God’s presence?
 
Lord, help me to put my love for You above all earthly loves.
 
Sts. Marcellinus and Peter, martyrs, pray for us.
