Think beyond the present and make sacrifices that will ensure an afterlife - Daily Bible Reflections March 12,2014


TRUE FREEDOM
 
“This generation is a wicked generation.” – Luke 11:29
 
When the RH Bill came out and our Church took its stand in rejecting it, even devoted Catholics became conflicted. Many asked, “Why is the government’s attempt to improve the lives of its citizens considered evil?” As a Christian, I think the more important question is: Why are we so passionate about fighting for our “rights” and our “freedom” when they hold us in bondage to sin and move us farther away from God?
       Think about it. Contraceptives give us freedom to have safe and pleasurable sex but leave us less able to master our lust.
       Divorce gives us freedom to love another person, by forsaking our vow to God to love our spouse no matter what.
       Abortion gives us the freedom to determine our capability and willingness to care for the unborn, yet we fail to consider God’s hand in creation and His plans for the child.
       Keep in mind that being legally free to do something does not mean that it also frees us from accountability to God. Think beyond the present and make sacrifices that will ensure an afterlife. Break free from the shackles of sin! Cecil Lim (cez_lim@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” (C.S. Lewis)
 
Father, You have given us all a conscience by which You guide us to live in truth and love. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
 
Blessed Angela Salawa, pray for us.
