What new things does the Lord want to teach you today? Be a forever student and keep growing - Daily Bible Reflections March 18,2015

WHAT I CAN DO
 
“I cannot do anything on my own.” – John 5:30
 
       My friend, a travel agent, couldn’t believe it when I told her I didn’t know how to book a flight to a tourist destination I planned to visit.
       I used to work for a lifestyle magazine with a travel section, so my friend assumed I knew such a simple thing as buying a plane ticket.
       Truth was, I’d never really done it. Most of my trips abroad were familiarization tours, sponsored by companies inviting me to write about their services. So the host companies arranged for my travel.
       I retired from my job a couple of years ago. Only then did I realize there were tasks I didn’t know how to handle because they were done for me — by my staff or my hosts. So to survive retirement, I had to quickly learn tasks which to others were a no-brainer but were such a mind-boggling puzzle for me.
       There have been many other things I thought I already knew about life. The Gospel today reminded me I can do everything if I follow Jesus who “can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” Cynthia U. Santiago (cusantiago@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: What new things does the Lord want to teach you today? Be a forever student and keep growing.
 
Lord, teach me, guide me, give me the grace to follow You — every day.
 
St. Cyril of Jerusalem, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
