Today, what is your answer to Jesus — a yes or a no? - Daily Bible Reflections March 25,2015

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord
 
YES AND AMEN
 
“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your Word.” – Luke 1:38
 
       Have you ever observed how often you say no?
       You might be missing opportunities every time you say it. This one word can make a huge difference in your relationships.
       For those who are very busy people like me, “No” is translated into, “Just a minute.”
     One afternoon, I noticed myself saying no more than yes to my children. When I realized that, I made an instant decision to change my “Just a minute” to “Yes.”
       When we say yes what we are really saying is, “Yes, I’m here for you. Yes, I want to listen to you. Yes, you mean more to me than the work I’m doing.”
    Yes is about connecting with the people you love, yes to more adventure, yes to more affection, yes to more fun, yes to more walks around the neighborhood, yes to more family time.
        The yes of Mary is the yes of humanity.
     When we needed God the most, God asked us a very significant question: “Do you need Me? Do you need saving?” Imagine if Mary said, “Just a minute…”
       But she didn’t.
       Mother Mary answered on our behalf. “Yes, Lord, we need You.”And God came. Arun Gogna (gognuts@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Today, what is your answer to Jesus — a yes or a no?
 
I say yes to You, Jesus, now and forever. Amen
 
St. Dismas, pray for us.
