One of the greatest signs of love is choosing an option for the benefit of another, even if it’s something other than what you prefer - Daily Bible Reflection November 3,2014


THE PINK HOUSE
 
Rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves, each looking out not for his own interests, but also everyone for those of others. – Philippians 2:3-4
 
       “Ha, ha, ha!” laughed his neighbor. “A pink house, dude? You must be out of your mind? I would never let my wife dictate me like that.”
       “You don’t understand. My wife says she feels happy whenever she sees pink. When she’s happy, I’m happy,” the man explained.
       It’s human nature to want to have everything our way. However, dying to one’s preferences for the good of another is a virtue. Mothers would eat the less tasty portions so their children can get the choicest parts of the chicken. Fathers would play parlor games even if they look silly because their kid asked to play with them. Friends would stay up late, foregoing much needed rest, to console a pal who is having work or relationship problems. Wives would choose to do the laundry by hand even if it would ruin their manicures so that their husbands’ uniforms will be cleaner and be more presentable. Husbands would endure watching a chick flick instead of going out with their buddies so their wives can watch their favorite movie star.
       All these they do out of love.
       So should you. Jun Asis (mabuting.balita@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: One of the greatest signs of love is choosing an option for the benefit of another, even if it’s something other than what you prefer.
 
Lord, grant me the grace to desire what is best for my neighbor before my own interest.
 
St. Martin de Porres, religious, pray for us.
