“Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else — God is in this person’s life.” - Daily Bible Reflections February 1,2016


CHOOSE YOUR PAIN
WISELY
 
“And now you suffer ruin because you are a murderer.” – 2 Samuel 16:8
 
       It was tiring just to watch Joe breathe. He has severe emphysema —an incurable lung condition, often caused by prolonged smoking. By the way he breathed, you’d think he was having an asthma attack 24 hours a day. Joe hasn’t gone out of his room for five years now. He just lies in bed the whole day, staring at the ceiling, mumbling to himself.
       “I brought this on myself,” he said. “I’m suffering now because I didn’t have the commitment to stop smoking even if everyone was telling me to stop. So I smoked for 40 years... Oh, if only I can turn back the hands of time!”
       I’ve realized one thing about life. You can never escape pain.
    But you can choose between two types of pain: the pain of  commitment or the pain of regret.
       The first pain weighs a kilo, but the second pain weighs a ton.
     Joe did not choose the pain of commitment. There were probably many times when he tried to stop. But he wanted to be cool. He chose the pain of regret.
 Friend, choose your pain wisely. Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Pope Francis Says: “Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else — God is in this person’s life.”
 
Dear Jesus, grant me the grace to choose the better path so that I will not regret later.
 
St. Ansgar, bishop, pray for us.
