Life is beautiful...




Life is beautiful
For in life there is you, my neighbour
My neighbour, who is happy, who is sad
My neighbour, who is healthy, who is weak
My neighbour, who is rich, who is poor

How beautiful is life
When I can be with my neighbour
To cherish the moments of happiness
To comfort the moments of sadness

My neighbour makes my life fulfilled
For when I am with my neighbour
There in the midst is Jesus
Life with Jesus is beautiful

Hebrews 13:5-6



Hebrews 13:5-6 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. So we say with confidence, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” 

Reflections:-

Are you happy and glad with what you have?

Do you trust Jesus that he provides for you?

Do you ask God to be your helper?

Are you afraid of your future financial situation?

Are you trusting in Jesus?

Monthly Reflection – February 2016 – ‘Being a Merciful Person’




Mercy. Being a merciful person is the ultimate key to taste and see that the Lord is good. What does it mean to be a merciful person? A merciful person is one who has the virtue and compassion for his neighbour. The compassion for your neighbour is to be one with the person by recognising their needs, and to do your utmost to help that person in the particular needs of their lives.

The needs of the person can be different from one person to another. When one looks at these needs, which are problematic for the person and can hinder them from accepting God in their lives, these needs are either of body or soul. So to be a merciful person one is to address these needs which are linked to the needs of the body, by feeding the hungry, to give drink to the thirsty, to clothe the naked, to harbour the harbourless, to visit the sick, to ransom the captive, and to bury the dead.

Also, a merciful person is to reach out to the spiritual needs of another person. To address the spiritual needs of your neighbour, one might need to counsel the doubtful, to instruct the ignorant, to admonish sinners, to bear wrongs patiently, to forgive, to comfort the afflicted, and to pray for the living and the dead.

Through these different actions of love, a merciful person who embraces the love of God in his life, and of being Jesus to these people, will experience grace, love and peace of the Lord.

Are you being a merciful person?
