Daily Bible Reflections - May 3,2013


Feast of Sts. Philip and James, Apostles
 

SPEAK AS I LIVE

 
“Believe because of the work themselves.” – John 14:11
 
The chief investigator Hong Guk-yeong in the Korean historical drama Yi San: Wind of the Palacewas going to try a group of their political foes for conspiracy to commit a crime. The ministers, in a bid to sway him, invited him to a high-class brothel, bowed and acted subservient to him, then declared at the middle of the drinking session that they were innocent of the allegations against them.
Hong Guk-yeong said in reply, “So why are your actions saying otherwise?”
Far too many times, we act like those ministers. We say we believe in God who created heaven and earth, yet we entrust our lives to some object bought somewhere that’s supposed to bring good fortune. We say Jesus died for our sins, yet we live as though we are still very much slaves of those same sins.
There are many things in our lives that conflict with what we say. But as one saying goes, “Your action speaks so loud I can’t hear a word you say.” People will only believe what we do, even if we say otherwise. Joy Sosoban (jsosoban@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: “For every tree is known by its own fruit.” (Luke 6:44)
 
Jesus, please help me to speak as I live and live as I speak.
 
Sts. Philip and James, Apostles, pray for us.
