Daily Bible Reflections - March 7,2013


ALLY OR ENEMY?
 
“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” – Luke 11:23
 
It was a few days before performance night and each group of performers and production people were busy rehearsing their assigned scenes. During one of the dry run nights, a group walked out in protest against their director who had verbally abused them. With one group missing, how could the play push through? Later, they were able to patch things up and the play ran smoothly.
In today’s Gospel, the Pharisees accused Jesus of driving out demons by the power of the devil. But Jesus tells them, “If Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand?” It’s absurd to think that Satan will drive out his allies, the demons. For a particular cause to be successful, unity among the members is important. If not, nothing gets achieved.
As believers and followers of Christ, we need to be united. We need to be of one mind and heart. The enemy is always on the lookout for dissension for he can use this as a way to thwart God’s plan and purposes. In the fight between good versus evil, there is no neutral ground. It’s either we are for Christ or against Him. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are you the cause of division or unity in your group?
 

Lord, disturb me when I insist that I always want to have it my way. Teach me to work towards unity.
 
Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, martyrs, pray for us.
