Are we interfering or obeying? - Daily Bible Reflections May 23,2015

OBEDIENCE AND
NON-INTERFERENCE
 
“What concern is it of yours? You follow me.” – John 21:22
 
       In 2013, I was blessed to be invited to talk about St. Peter as a leader. This was in the shrine named after him in Fairview, Quezon City. I shared that, just like him, I am impetuous and I talk fast without sometimes thinking deeply about the issue at hand.
       The verse that I chose shows the scene where Peter asks Jesus what will happen to John, the beloved disciple. The Lord rebukes Peter by practically telling him it was none of his business. Then, Jesus says to him, “Follow Me.”
       In our pilgrim lives, there might be moments that we might be tempted to ask the Lord what His will is for other people. We tend to compare ourselves to others and expect that what the Lord demands of us is what He’d ask from others, too.
       But often, God is not like that. He calls us individually, asking one to serve Him in this way, and asking another to serve in that. It is prudent that we just obey what He tells us to do and not interfere in the purposes He has for others. Grace Princesa (grprincesa @yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are we interfering or obeying?
 
Lord, may I always listen to Your still, small voice and not the noise of the world.
 
St. Felix of Cantalice, pray for us.
