My Gospel Reflections February 27, Sunday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time:Matthew 6:24-34

My Reflections:
There’s this story of a mother in her mid forties; after working for almost twenty years and being financially stable already she applied for an early retirement. Her reason was she wanted to spend more time with her family and she also wanted to put-up a small business that she can call her own she had full trust in God that she will not fail.

After two years this mother was searching for a job again her reason was they were running out of funds already.  If you ask her what happened to her business she would dryly say that it did not prosper. And if you ask her again as to what happened to her trust in God she would ironically say that it’s much better to trust more on herself than trust God.

This mother’s trust in God was severely tested unfortunately she waivered on her belief and on her faith that God will help her succeed in her business.

In our lives there will be instances wherein we will be at a crossroad or a crucial point where we have to ponder if we will continue with our trust in God or we will trust more on ourselves. When there’s no more food on the table, when there’s no more money in our pockets should we still trust God to provide for us or we put aside our trust in God we do it our way to earn a living.

When we say that we trust God it doesn’t mean that we will just lie down and wait for God’s blessings to come our way like manna from heaven. To trust God is to do everything humanly possible for us to earn a living without losing our faith in God: So it’s faith with action!

Jesus used birds in the sky as metaphor for His providence,  birds fly and look for their food and that’s when God feeds them.  Birds don’t just stay idle in one place and wait for their food to come to them.  

That’s what we must do also we must move and look for a living with faith, move and look for our destiny with faith. As we move let us ask God to guide us, to be with us for He will not fail us and He will certainly provide for us. …
