Reflection for Thursday January 26, Saints Timothy and Titus, bishops; Mark 4:21-25

Gospel Mark 4:21-25
Jesus said to his disciples, "Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light. Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear." He also told them, "Take care what you hear. The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you. To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away."

Reflection:
What do you do after your presence in the Holy Mass? What do you do after you’ve read and reflected on the word of God? Do you keep it only to yourself?

God who continues to make a difference in your life must shine brightly within you. Not necessarily through your words but most importantly through your actions. If you read in the bible that you should be humble and forgiving. By all means be forgiving and humble.

If there’s a need for you to reach out don’t think twice. Reach out and let Jesus who always reach out shine within you. When you do things for Jesus you have to always do it with humility so that Jesus should always be seen in you.

You allow yourself to become the lampstand of Jesus when you do things with humility. As such you will shine brightly and it will be Jesus who would be highlighted and not yourself.

Many of us commit this frequent mistake of raising ourselves in the pedestal of prominence. We purposely upstage Jesus and it is our ego and our very high regard of ourselves that are seen. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
