How are your relationships? Are they pleasing to God? - Daily Bible Reflections February 27,2015



SAVING GRACE

“Go first and be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” – Matthew 5:24

       My girlfriend and I were driving to Tagaytay one weekend to serve in a retreat. I can’t remember now what sparked our fight but we were soon irritated at each other. Tempers rose and we hurled hurtful words at each other. By the time we reached the venue, neither of us wanted to budge from our seats.
       And then it hit us. We couldn’t give what we didn’t have. So we held each other’s hands and calmed down. We humbly prayed to God for forgiveness, peace, healing and understanding. We asked God to remain at the center of our relationship. We reconciled and left all the hurt behind.
       We got out of the car refreshed and grateful to God. That weekend turned out to be one of the best retreats we had ever served in. It was full of healing, anointing and ease.
       I thank God for His saving grace at that moment. He reminded us that before we begin to love and serve others, we should love and serve our own relationships first. Didoy Lubaton (christianlubaton@yahoo.com)

Reflection: How are your relationships? Are they pleasing to God?

Lord, in my desire to love and honor You, make me remember that giving love and honor to my brother or sister is what You want me to do.

St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.
