How do we begin to know who You are until we begin ourselves to be something of what You are? - Daily Bible Reflections July 28,2015


REAL INTIMACY
 
The Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as one man speaks to another. – Exodus 33:11
 
       Virtual friendships are fast overtaking our relationships. What with a gamut of gadgets that are easily bundled with every unlimited plan conceivable, making friends and staying as friends is as easy as flicking your finger across your smartphone’s screen. But do virtual friendships foster real intimacy and deep love?
       A great example of intimacy was Moses’ relationship with the Lord. What an honor it was for Moses to speak to the Lord “face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend.” Such intimacy was born from spending time together, from the powerful revelation of the Ten Commandments to the constant one-on-ones in the Tent of Meeting. This relationship deepened as Moses desired to become more like God and to know His ways.  
       If only we netizens can get to know the Lord by “friending” Him on Facebook, following Him on Twitter, and seeing Him on Instagram. But just like Moses, we become intimate with the Lord the old-fashioned way — by spending time with Him in prayer, reflecting on His Word, and becoming more and more like Him.

Reflection: “How do we begin to know who You are until we begin ourselves to be something of what You are? We receive enlightenment only in proportion as we give ourselves more and more completely to God in humble submission and love.” (Thomas Merton)
 
Lord, I want to know You in the way You reveal Yourself to me. Give me the grace to reflect on Your Word every day. Amen.
 
St. Leopold Mandic, pray for us.
