Do you recognize that your family members are God’s gifts to you? Do you consciously set aside time to bond with them so that they would know and feel that they are important to you? - Daily Bible Reflections September 23, 2016


Memorial of St. Pio of Pietrelcina
 
TIME FOR FAMILY
 
There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. – Ecclesiastes 3:1
 
       The family is the basic unit of society. Yet, it is threatened by so many things nowadays. There are a growing number of broken homes that produce children who are also broken. One factor that leads to this is when one or both parents fail to invest time in their family. Many parents are too busy with their jobs or businesses that they spend too much time at work. And when they get home, they still spend their time looking at their computers or mobile phones instead of looking at their loved ones in the eye.
       It has been said that relationships are like plants. You need to water them daily or they die. So we need to invest time in our relationships. Otherwise, they would deteriorate.
     Ecclesiastes 3 says that there’s an appointed time for everything. There is a time for work and a time for rest. A time to be out of the house and a time to be home. “A time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.”
       Take time to embrace your family members today and look them in the eye. Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag (teregmps@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Do you recognize that your family members are God’s gifts to you? Do you consciously set aside time to bond with them so that they would know and feel that they are important to you?
 
Father, You made time to create and to rest. Help me to remember to make time for all that You want me to do. Grant me wisdom in the use of my precious time so I can give glory to You.
 
St. Padre Pio de Pietrelcina, pray for us.
