Among these things or virtues that God wants you to pursue, where do you need to improve most? - Daily Bible Reflections September 29,2013

Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, archangels
 

HOLY PURSUIT

 
But you, man of God, pursue righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. – 1 Timothy 6:11
 
Modern man is busy nowadays with the pursuit of many things. Some people are busy pursuing their studies, careers, wealth or their interests. Many seek happiness and success. Running after these things is not bad in themselves. What makes them bad is when chasing our personal goals and interests cause us to sin and destroy our relationship with God. When the things we pursue take the place of the things that God wants us to aim at, then we know that we are chasing the wrong things.
       How much of your time do you spend striving for the things of heaven? Compare this to the time that you spend pursuing your personal goals and interests. Are these the things that God wants you to seek? Are the things that you spend most of your time on bringing you closer to heaven and making you a better man or woman of God?
       There are things that God wants us to seek first as Christians. These are righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness. Let us examine our lives based His desires. Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag (teregmps@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Among these things or virtues that God wants you to pursue, where do you need to improve most?
 
Lord, help us examine our lives so we can see how we can grow in being a Christian and living out these virtues.
 
Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, archangels, pray for us.
