Who really rules your life — God or a god? - Daily Bible Reflections August 17,2015


TOTAL ECLIPSE
OF THE HEART
 
“All of these I have observed. What do I still lack?” – Matthew 19:20
 
       She is one of the most generous persons you’ll ever know. She regularly goes to Mass and is prayerful. She’s a good boss to her staff. She’s a good mom to her kids and a good wife to her husband. She takes good care of her parents and provides for all their needs. She’ll always be there if you need her.
       She regularly goes to a fortune teller for all her major decisions, especially those which involve her business. She owes her success to her fortune teller and thanks God for her blessings. Even if she knows that going to a fortune teller is against the teachings of the Church, she justifies it by saying that she is able to help a lot of people with the money she gets from the successful advice of the fortune teller.
       Just like the rich young man, she thinks that she’s doing good because she keeps all the commandments of God. What she doesn’t realize is that her heart relies not on God. God doesn’t look at the externals — if we give generously or we go on television to give Him the glory for all our blessings. He looks at our heart. At the end of our life, God will see who really sits at the throne of our heart — the Light of Jesus or someone else eclipsing that Light. Ronna Ledesma (ronna_ledesma@yahoo.com.ph)
 
Reflection: Who really rules your life — God or a god?
 
Abba, forgive me for those times I doubted that You will provide for all my needs.
 
St. Joan of the Cross, pray for us.
