Daily Bible Reflections- January 25, 2012

Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Apostle
But Ananias replied, “Lord, I have heard from many sources about this man, what evil things he has done to your holy ones in Jerusalem.” – Acts 9: 13
Scared, suspicious and resentful, Jeruza still obeyed her boss. She was tasked to orient Pia, the new executive who came from their rival company. Pia was infamous for her previous attacks on this company’s credibility so many were shocked to find her switching sides. Jeruza tried her best to be polite while waiting for Pia to make mistakes.
Days passed and Jeruza found Pia surprisingly pleasant. Was she the same person? Did she have a hidden agenda? Soon, she saw how dedicated Pia was, and felt bad about her prejudice. Jeruza’s experience taught her to obey and trust her bosses, stop judging and give people a chance to change.
Like Jeruza, Ananias was tasked by the Lord to help out Saul, who was a known persecutor of Christians. Ananias had his reservations but he obeyed God. This paved the way for St. Paul to become God’s powerful instrument.
Though one has been judged by his misdeeds, we do not know what God has in store for him and what mighty works he will be doing in the future. Carlo Lorenzo (carloflorenzo@yahoo.com)
“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.” (Oswald Chambers)
Oh God of wisdom, take away the judgment in our heart against people. One’s sins do not define his future. May the conversion of St. Paul inspire us that he was a sinner first before he became a saint.
St. Peter Thomas, pray for us.
