Catch yourself — what have you been complaining about recently? Is there something you can do about it? - Daily Bible Reflections August 1, 2016


STOP COMPLAINING
 
“Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.” – Matthew 14:17
 
       Some people read the newspaper every morning or watch news on TV. They fill their minds with the latest exposes, the latest politician caught in graft, the latest violence in the world. During lunchtime, with officemates, they become expert political analysts. And every day, they arrive at the same conclusion: Our country is going to the dogs.
        After work, they go home and unwind in front of the TV set to watch more bad news. And we wonder why we’re miserable.
       May I suggest a new way of feeding our minds? Every morning, I read a few verses from the Bible. I hear God tell me that He loves me and has a wonderful plan for my life. I open myself to the ocean of blessings all around me that day.
       When I meet my friends, we don’t complain about how bad the country is. We build life-giving communities. We create inspirational media. We reach out to the broken, wounded and lost. Because complaining is a total waste of energy, time and saliva. I’m too busy making this country great by the little things that I do every day.
       This country will be great if you and I will make it great. Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: Catch yourself — what have you been complaining about recently? Is there something you can do about it?
 
Dear Lord, empower me to do my share in building a better world for future generations.
 
St. Alphonsus Liguori, bishop, pray for us.
