“If you have patience and diligence, the seeds of knowledge will certainly give good fruit.” (Leonardo da Vinci) - Daily Bible Reflections September 20, 2016


HASTE MAKES WASTE
 
The plans of the diligent are sure of profit, but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty. – Proverbs 21:5
 
       “The Banker’s offer is P999,000. Is it a deal or no deal?” Kris Aquino, the host of the game show, Deal or No Deal, asked the contestant.
       “No deal!” the player answered with full conviction.
     Two million pesos was still on the board and the only substantial amount; the few remaining were just measly sums.
       “Why did you choose ‘No deal’?” Kris asked.
       “Because before I went to the studio, I opened my Bible and was able to read this verse from Psalm 37:4, ‘Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart,’” the contestant said.
       “And what is your heart’s desire?” Kris asked.
      “To get the two million pesos!” She won only a small amount for the two million was not in the briefcase she held.
      The contestant joined the game show to try her luck so she could provide for the tuition fees of her younger siblings. The two million blinded her from her true desire and her hasty decision kept her from walking away with almost a million pesos.
       Let us learn to be wise and prudent in the decisions we make so we can avoid costly mistakes. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “If you have patience and diligence, the seeds of knowledge will certainly give good fruit.” (Leonardo da Vinci)
 
Lord, teach me to be prudent, not only in temporal things but also in spiritual ones, that I may do what is pleasing in Your sight.
 
Sts. Andrew Kim Taegon, Paul Chong Hasang and Companions, martyrs, pray for us.
