My Reflection for Thursday November 21, the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Luke 19:41-44

+ + + + + + +
My Reflection:
In the midst of sad stories of destruction and deaths caused by typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan there was also a story of triumph against the storm.  In the tiny island of Tulang Diyot inCebu Philippines almost all of the houses were badly damaged some were completely demolished by the typhoons strong winds and storm surge.

But it was a miracle that no one died in that tiny island considering that it was in the eye of the storm. The reason behind according to its mayor is they prepared for this for three days.  By relocating the people to safe and higher grounds. We see the good result  when we listen and follow the instructions of competent authorities.

During the time of Jesus, He also called for repentance, some listened to His call. But majority of them did not listen, they instead continued with their sinful way of life. In so doing they wrapped themselves with problems that they could have easily avoided if they only listened to Jesus.

Come to think of it, in our own personal lives there are also many instances that we are adviced to live a clean life. To renew our lives and walk away from all our sinfulness, but do we listen? Often times we don’t listen because we love to follow our own sinful desires, we allow the devil to possess us instead of Jesus.

Jesus is the best friend that we could ever have, He is our best adviser therefore it is a must that we always listen to Him. We have everything to gain and nothing to lose if we listen to Jesus. ...
