Reflection for Friday November 11, Saint Martin of Tours, Bishop; Luke 17:26-37

Luke 17:26-37
Jesus said to his disciples: “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the Son of Man; they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up to the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Similarly, as it was in the days of Lot: they were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building; on the day when Lot left Sodom, fire and brimstone rained from the sky to destroy them all. So it will be on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day, someone who is on the housetop and whose belongings are in the house must not go down to get them, and likewise one in the field must not return to what was left behind. Remember the wife of Lot. Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it. I tell you, on that night there will be two people in one bed; one will be taken, the other left. And there will be two women grinding meal together; one will be taken, the other left.”  They said to him in reply, “Where, Lord?” He said to them, “Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather.

Reflection:
What happens when we don’t anymore listen to God? We have no qualms of committing sin. Sin becomes a wicked way of life until this kind of lifestyle destroys us. We will not fully comprehend the wickedness of sin until it’s too late already.

This is how the devil actually works, it hides sin through eye-catching appearance that it becomes attractive to many of us. We therefore have to recognize the warning signs or the red flags that will tell us that we are siding with the devil. And what are these?

When we begin to love this world more than we love God. When we indulge in hedonistic actions, when we don’t anymore give ear to meaningful advice. All of these are the red flags that will warn us that we are self-destructing.    

We are self-destructing for the reason that the presence of God is not anymore present in our life.  And we all know what happens to the life of a person when he shuns God there’s no peace and contentment only temptations and troubles.

Do you want this kind of life?  – Marino J. Dasmarinas
