Daily Bible Reflections - March 6,2013


LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS
 
“For what great nation is there that has gods so close to it as the Lord, our God, is to us whenever we call upon him?” – Deuteronomy 4:7
 
The sign on the highway said, “No crossing. Pedestrians have died here.” Still, pedestrians continued to cross even at the risk of their own lives. It was unconscious suicide! Traffic enforcers even had a heyday punishing the offenders by making them publicly sing the national anthem with a megaphone.
Just as human laws are made to protect lives, God’s commandments were given to us to preserve our lives and enable us to live more abundantly. His laws show us at least three things: (1) a sign of wisdom to non-believers; (2) a sign showing the close relationship God has for His children; and (3) a sign of a Father’s great love for us. Did you notice, though, the difference between human laws and God’s commandments? Human laws are made to implement order but God’s laws are given because He loves.
More than the sacrifice required by our religious obligations during this time of Lent, let’s offer our obedience expressed out of a hunger in our hearts to return God’s love for those He died to save. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Heroes shed their blood to make this nation and its laws great. But Someone greater than a hero gave His life that we may live ours more abundantly. How obedient are we to Him?
 
When I do not see the logic in being obedient, Lord, increase my faith, grant me serenity, and teach me to hope, that I may follow out of love.
 
Servant of God Sylvester of Assisi, pray for us.
