Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me - Daily Bible Reflections July 9,2015

THE MISSING PEACE
 
“As you enter a house, wish it peace…” – Matthew 10:12
 
On my way to work, I heard a woman shouting at the top of her lungs inside her car. She was screaming at the village security guard who stopped her because she didn’t have a sticker and was asking who she was visiting. She was clearly upset, and the strain and pain in her voice told me that the anger was not just about the poor guard’s comment. He had hit a nerve. As people stopped to watch her outburst, I felt for her. Maybe she was going through rough times in life. Perhaps her home is in disarray, the kids are in trouble, or a loved one is dying. As I walked on, I prayed a Hail Mary for her and wished her peace.
       We have no control over what happens outside of us. The world will always have its share of stresses — an irate customer, an arrogant driver, a person who curses you out of the blue. The truth is, it’s not about you. It’s what’s happening inside of them. The only thing we have control of is our response to the situation. It would be wise to choose to keep your peace and give the person the benefit of the doubt. The least we could do is pray for them.
       Oh, how the world needs peace — peace from within. May we be bearers of peace in our thoughts and deeds. Marjorie Ann Duterte (marjorie.travels@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
 
Father, Your peace is a precious gift. May Your peace descend upon my mind and heart today and may I share this peace to the hurting. Amen.
 
St. Augustine Zhao Rong and Companions, pray for us.
