Daily Bible Reflections - December 11,2012

“And if he finds it…he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.” – Matthew 18:13
Beep! Beep! As if on cue, my sister’s pet dogs, Tiger and Mozart, ran towards the gate. Richard, my brother-in-law, had just arrived and the dogs impatiently waited for the gate to open. When it did, they scampered onto the street. Mozart was the first one to return but Tiger was nowhere in sight.
Then it rained. The heavy downpour flooded the street. When the rain stopped and the water subsided, my sister went out a few times to check whether Tiger was back. But he was nowhere in sight. In tears, my sister prayed for Tiger’s safe return. When she checked again, she saw three dogs coming towards her direction. It was Tiger, accompanied by two other dogs. When Tiger finally went in, the two dogs quietly left.
In the parable of the lost sheep, Jesus exhorts His disciples to seek out those who have gone astray and bring them back to community. Tiger lost his way but two dogs led him back home. My sister rejoiced for Tiger was lost and was found.
Likewise, we, too, are called to be seekers of the lost — those who may have strayed from the right path — and lead them back to God.Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
Do our lives point the way towards God or are we lost ourselves?
Lord, let Your light shine brightly in me so I may lead the stray back to You.
St. Damasus I, pope, pray for us.
