Are you brave enough to express your faith even if other people will think you’re strange? - Daily Bible Reflections April 4,2014


OTHER WORLDLY
 
“They are not like other people; they have strange ways.” – Wisdom 2:15
 
       He’s such a traditionalist he thinks what my children and I do for a living are strange — an online writer, a 3D animator, and a preschool teacher. In his world, only engineers, pilots, doctors, lawyers and other typical career people can succeed.
       He also said, “When I read your blog, I don’t understand a thing. It’s like writing from the Holy Land.” I wondered if I ever sleep-wrote in Aramaic and emailed him by mistake. I like writing about my faith. He only likes to hear about worldly matters. He must think I came to my parents from another galaxy so we’re really not related.
       I’ve never been able to convince him and his family to come to our prayer meetings. The “Praise the Lords,” the “Alleluias” and the raised hands are probably too peculiar for them.
       There might be people — those you hardly know or, sadly, even those close to you — who think that following God’s call for your life and expressing your love for Him is weird. Don’t let them discourage you because the most important opinion is from the One who created you. Lella M. Santiago (mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are you brave enough to express your faith even if other people will think you’re strange?
 

Help me, Jesus, to be bold for You and to keep on trying to get other people to know You even if I get laughed at or persecuted.
 
St. Isidore of Seville, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
