Remember to seek first the Kingdom of God and everything else will follow - Daily Bible Reflections April 16,2015

NO CONTEST
 
“We must obey God rather than men.” – Acts 5:29
 
       Obeying laws of men should be good and proper. They’re designed to protect the welfare of everyone.
       Pleasing people isn’t totally bad. We should be kind and nice to others. Tolerance is a big word nowadays to respect and accommodate others’ beliefs and way of life.
       Yet there comes a time when pleasing and obeying men’s laws will run in conflict with God’s laws and His Divine will. This is especially so with moral issues. And you have to make a choice.
         Time and again I find myself in this predicament. I try to find a “win-win” situation, a compromise, where I hope to serve and please both. But there comes a time when you have to choose only one — God or man.
       If and when it comes to that, there should be no contest at all. For if you choose man and drop God, you lose everything.
       While if you seek God first and His righteousness, everything else shall be added unto you. Alvin Barcelona (apb_ayo@yahoo.

Reflection: Are you making a decision to choose between God and man? Is it about love, career, finances or ministry? Remember to seek first the Kingdom of God and everything else will follow.
 
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to seek You and put You first in every decision I make. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
 
St. Bernadette Soubirous, virgin, pray for us.
