Daily Bible Reflections - April 4,2013


Easter Thursday
 

MARRIED TO A WALL

 
“Now I know, brothers and sisters, that you acted out of ignorance.” – Acts 3:17
 
I found this entry in Ripley’s Believe It or Not: “Driven by love for the Berlin Wall, Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer of Sweden married it in 1979 and took its name as her surname.”
It’s obviously crazy to marry a wall. We may not do something as bizarre but are we any different in our love for material things?
How about the husband who pours time and money on his car and yells at his wife and children if they so much as scratch its glossy finish or spill something inside its pristine interior?
How about the mother who watches telenovelas nonstop rather than sit with her child who needs help with homework?
How about the career-driven person who backstabs a colleague to get ahead in the corporate rat race?
How about the employee who takes home office supplies to save on his kids’ school supplies?
Many times we act like we are ignorant of the fact that people and values are more important than things. Let us consciously seek to know God’s ways and His will so that we can act like the Christians that we’re supposed to be. Lella M. Santiago (mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: What worldly thing has become more important to you than God, values and relationships?                         
 
Lord, reign in my heart forever. You are my Number One.
 
St. Isidore of Seville, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
