What do people close to you remember you for? Have you been a person of grace to them? - Daily Bible Reflections January 20,2015


PEOPLE OF GRACE
 
Then he said to them, “The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath. – Mark 2:27
 
          Take this quiz: Name the five wealthiest people in the world. Name the last five Jones Cup champions. Name the last decade’s bar topnotchers.
       How did you do? These names are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Certificates are buried with their owners.
       Here’s another quiz. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special. Was that easier?
       My point: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, most money or most awards. They’re the ones who care. People who loved you unconditionally when you thought the earth is for haters. People who gave you hope when you were gasping against certain extinction. People who believed in you after you’ve written yourself off. They are the people of grace. They know that the “Sabbath is made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.”
       My friend, are you a person of grace for someone today? Jon Escoto (faithatworkjon@gmail.com)
 
 
Reflection: What do people close to you remember you for? Have you been a person of grace to them?
 
Father, show me the person whom You want me to extend the power of Your grace today. I know they are not too far.
 
St. Sebastian, martyr, pray for us.
