My Reflection for Tuesday December 24, Fourth Week of Advent; Luke 1:67-79

+ + + + + + +
Gospel: Luke 1:67-79
Zechariah his father, filled with the Holy Spirit, prophesied, saying:

“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; for he has come to his people and set them free. He has raised up for us a mighty Savior, born of the house of his servant David. Through his prophets he promised of old that he would save us from our enemies, from the hands of all who hate us. He promised to show mercy to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant. This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham: to set us free from the hand of our enemies, free to worship him without fear, holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life. You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way, to give his people knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of their sins. In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

My Reflection:
Are we cognizant of the many blessings that God has bestowed upon us? For example the blessing of new life every morning: do we remember to thank God for this new life? The food on the table; do we say a prayer of thanks before we eat?  Or we are already used of getting-up in the morning, already used of the food on the table that it becomes ordinary already. So we immediately hop-in with our busy schedules thus we forget God.

Let us be mindful that the evil one through this world is slowly swaying us away from God thru its various enticements. It keeps us busy until such time that God becomes a simple unknown figure in our minds. Thus we sin without fear of the consequences for the reason that God is not part of our lives anymore. Zechariah was well aware of the many blessings that God has showered him and his family that’s why he praised Him.

In good times and in bad he never walked away from God he remained faithful to Him.
