Do you use the life you were given only to serve yourself or do you responsibly use it to serve God and others? - Daily Bible Reflections November 24,2015


GOD’S BALL OF WRATH?
 
“There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues...” – Luke 21:11
 
       The Philippines will remember 2013 for the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that flattened Bohol and the strongest ever recorded typhoon Haiyan (“Yolanda”) that ravaged Central Philippines. In other parts of the world, the Midwest US and Ohio Valley were hit by a tornado, Indonesia had a violent volcanic eruption, while the desert kingdom of Riyadh experienced severe flooding.
       What is happening to the world? Is the end near? Environmentalists point to climate change. But doomsayers claim these  events are God’s way of punishing a world gone astray – with war, corruption and widespread acceptance of abortion.
       Nobody knows the time and day of God’s second coming. It will happen according to His time. Instead of ranting about shortcomings, questioning God for the tragedies, and predicting the end of the world, let us channel our energies to doing these things: Let us recognize the strong spirit of humanity and the best of mankind that springs after each tragedy. Let us examine our inner selves about our contributions in making the world a better place, and finally, in preparing ourselves for death and His judgment. Marie Franco (mariefranco_pie@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Do you use the life you were given only to serve yourself or do you responsibly use it to serve God and others?
 
Spare us, O Lord, from the tragedies in life. And as I am spared, grant me the conscience to uplift those who experience tragedies and trials in life.
 
St. Andrew Dung-Lac and Companions, pray for us.
