Daily Bible Reflections - July 1, 2012


BULLSEYE
 
For God formed man to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made him. – Wisdom 2:23
 
Once upon a time, I thought I was a target of God’s wrath. I felt God was playing darts, and I was the bullseye.
I imagined God looking down at me, shaking His head in disgust. I felt I was a great disappointment to Him. To escape His judgments, I needed to pray, read my Bible, go to Mass, avoid sin and become holier.
But no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t be good enough. I’d fail to pray or read my Bible. I’d slip into sin again.
I felt like I was running up an escalator that was actually moving downward! How could I ever make God like me?
But as I reflected on key stories of the Bible, especially where Jesus was exposing the face of His Father, I realized it didn’t jive with my image of God. Slowly, a new face of God emerged in my heart.
Today, I’m riding the escalator that’s going up. I don’t pray or read the Bible or live as a good boy out of fear.
I do all that out of love.
Yes, I’m still His bullseye — I’m a target of God’s affection!
And I pray the same miracle will happen in your life. Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)

REFLECTION:
How do you see yourself in relation to God?
 
God, grant me the grace to see myself as You see me — Your beloved!
