Daily Bible Reflections - May 28,2013


THE POWER OF FOCUS

 
“There is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age.” – Mark 10:29-30
 
Q: Manny Pacquiao, Henry Sy, Gary V. and Mother Teresa — what do they have in common? A: They are all known as successful people. And all are either Mr. or Ms. “100 Percent” who give their all for the sake of the “dream.”
       Show me a successful person and I’ll show you a 100-percent person willing to leave everything, even those they have a rightful claim to, to pursue their big dream. This is the key to all success. The universe abhors a vacuum. When you empty yourself, God will fill it with the beauty you aspire for. Jesus is handing out a similar key to the highest dream you and I could ever have.
       The people I mentioned may have been successful in specific areas of their lives. Friend, my encouragement is this: be successful where it really matters. No, I don’t believe that Jesus wants you to thoughtlessly just leave your home, children, family, etc. Jesus’ big message is, “Focus on Me. Pursue Me above all. Yes, you are called to other loyalties, but your loyalty to Me should be on top of the list.” This is the way to succeed where it really matters. In life now and eternity, too!

Reflection: What weakens your love for God?
 
Father, may I willingly leave all for You and for the dreams You’ve put in me.
 
St. Mary Ann of Jesus of Paredes, pray for us.
