Daily Bible Reflections - December 16,2012

“Do not practice extortion, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be satisfied with your wages.” – Luke 3:14
Most of us think that to be holy we need to do great and extraordinary things. Like becoming a religious, a missionary or a full-time preacher. Or actively serve in church or belong to a spiritual community. Or have extended hours of prayer time and Bible study.
Of course, all these things are very good! But somehow, we forget to realize that the first important step is to follow the basics.
Be honest. Be faithful. Be content.
Be kind. Be generous. Be loving.
In fact, deepening our spirituality may simply mean and should lead to the strengthening of these basic things!
And these things we can do whoever we are, wherever we are — as an employee, a professional, a soldier, a businessman, etc.
No wonder that’s how John the Baptist started them off. Because you won’t advance ahead without the strong basics. Otherwise you’ll be building on shaky foundations.
Didn’t you move up to higher mathematics by mastering your four fundamentals? Or advanced in reading and writing by first learning the alphabet?
Skip these basics and you’ll get nowhere.Alvin Barcelona (alvinbarcelona@gmail.com)
Am I hurrying to go high and deep but might be skipping the more simple, fundamental and basic things? Be more honest today.
Dear God, in the spirit of Advent, help me prepare for Christmas in the most simple way – by loving more. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Blessed Honoratus Kozminski, pray for us.
