Daily Bible Reflections - May 27,2013


JUST ONE

 
Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing...” – Mark 10:21                                 
 
There’s a popular expression that goes, “You can take a girl out of the country but you can never take the country out of a girl.” It refers to a woman who spends loads of money to appear rich and classy, but the moment she opens her mouth, it reveals her poor breeding or lack of class. She’s overhauled the external but left out the crucial internal factor that would complete the transformation.
       That’s the way it is with our spiritual life sometimes.We may be doing a lot of spiritual acrobatics for God, giving spiritual seminars left and right, practically living in the church or in prayer meetings — yet we may not be an inch closer to God.
       Stop. Think. What is that one thing that God has told you to do that you have not yet obeyed?
       The rich young man in the Gospel has kept every commandment since he was young. But Jesus asks of him just one thing. And he goes away sadly. Ronna Ledesma (ronna_ledesma@yahoo.com.ph)
 
Reflection: If you feel like you’re in a spiritual rut, check if you have not yet obeyed God in that one thing He is asking of you.
 
Lord, let me not withhold from You that one thing You ask of me.
 
St. Augustine of Canterbury, bishop, pray for us.
