The world is not safe for us but the arms of Jesus are far-reaching. And among us, there are people whom God uses to bring love and harmony - Daily Bible Reflections March 5,2014


Ash Wednesday
 
EMISSARY OF PEACE
 
So we are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. – 2 Corinthians 5:20
 
A robbery just took place in the neighborhood. Everyone was shouting in anger, ranting at and accusing one another. Nobody knew who did it, but they all had their suspicions. They lost money, watches, frying pans, even cell phones, grocery items, and other small stuff.
       It was as if a “tsunami” swept through the street that day.
       Where were they when the robbery happened?
       On that fateful morning, all eyes and ears were glued to the television in the house of the barangay captain. While Manny Pacquiao was punching away, the robber took advantage of the open doors in the whole street.
       After an hour, the noise died down, and everyone was quiet and sad. One man stood up, gathered the men, women and children and told them that it was good that no one was home when the robbers came. Otherwise, some could have been hurt or even killed. Like an ambassador of peace, he led them to pray and thank God that they were all alive and unhurt and that they had only lost material goods. Chelle S.Crisanto (ellehcmaria@yahoo.com)
 
 
Reflection: The world is not safe for us but the arms of Jesus are far-reaching.  And among us, there are people whom God uses to bring love and harmony.
 
Use me, Lord, that I may share the love You have given me to those in need.
 
St. John Joseph of the Cross, pray for us.
