“The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble.” - Daily Bible Reflections February 19,2016


THE CHALLENGE
 
Leave your gift there at the altar, go first be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. – Matthew 5:24
 
       During Lent, we find ways to sacrifice. Maybe in the form of abstinence. Or maybe fulfilling a ritual or vow. I guess, at the end of the day, we are all called to go beyond our comfort zone.
       How about a different challenge this Lent? The challenge is to sacrifice our need to be right all the time so that we can grow our relationships. Here are a few examples to show us how this works:
        Your child commits a mistake again. Instead of pointing out the wrong that he did, discover what led to it by listening and understanding.
           Your spouse irritates you for the nth time. Instead of criticizing your partner, find out what his or her real intentions are and seek to understand.
       Your co-worker messed up again. Instead of pointing out the problem, understand where she’s coming from and help her find a solution.
         The basic rule of the challenge? Less pointing. More understanding. Orange Garcia (orange_garcia@hotmail.com)
 
Pope Francis Says: “The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble.”
 
Lord, expand my heart and mind with understanding.
 
St. Conrad of Piacenza, pray for us.
