“Always know in your heart that God is by your side; He never abandons you!” - Daily Bible Reflections February 3,2016


HOME COURT
ADVANTAGE
 
A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house. – Mark 6:4
 
       Home court advantage is a term in sports where the home team has a psychological advantage over their opponent because they’re playing in familiar facilities and in front of supportive fans. This was evident at the NBA Championship in 2014 when the San Antonio Spurs defeated their opponent, Miami Heat, in their home court. Their victory was even sweeter because their own people cheered and celebrated with them.
    In contrast to today’s Gospel, Jesus didn’t have a home court advantage. He wasn’t welcome in His own native place. He was rejected by His own people. And in some accounts of the Gospel, they belittled Him, saying He was only the son of a carpenter. Someone even said, “Can any good come from Nazareth?”
       With this story, Jesus teaches us to focus on our vision and mission even when challenges and disadvantages come our way. This includes rejection from those we expect to support us. When this happens, we should cast off rejection and move forward to pursue the will of God for us and for the benefit of others as well. Just like Jesus, let us continue to pursue the good fight even if we don’t have a home court advantage. After all, God is always on our side. JC Libiran (CoachJCLibiran@gmail.com)
 
Pope Francis Says: “Always know in your heart that God is by your side; He never abandons you!”
 
Lord, let me live my life not according to how the world tells me but  according to Your ways.
 
St. Blasé, bishop and martyr, pray for us.
