Examine your life and see if there are pockets of disaster caused by your own foolish actions - Daily Bible Reflections December 4,2014


DISASTER MAGNET
 
But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. – Matthew 7:26
 
       Watching news about destructive typhoons can be both horrifying and touching. We’ve seen exasperating footage showing people who bring disaster upon themselves. Like squatters refusing to leave their houses built right at the edge of waterways that flood when it rains or a guy plunging his car straight into the flood. The motorist claimed it was the fault of the government, the TV reporter and the people on the street for not warning him. Never mind if the water was obviously high already and other vehicles were parked at the end of the street waiting for the flood to recede. That guy still thinks that his car getting submerged was just not his fault!
       We may want to shake some sense into these foolish people but then, are we any different? How about when we disobey God? We turn a deaf ear to His warnings and then claim our misfortune is not really our fault.
       Contrary to what many people think, the adversities that come our way when we do something wrong aren’t God’s punishment. They are consequences of our wrong choices. But when we choose to obey His way, then we can expect that His blessings are not far behind. Lella M. Santiago (mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Examine your life and see if there are pockets of disaster caused by your own foolish actions.
 
Father, help me build my house on the firm foundation of Your Word.
 
St. John Damascene, priest and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
