Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
October 25, A.D. 2002
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
As I began my morning prayer after reading today's Scriptures, memories
of words spoken so many times filled my mind: "Treat everyone the way
you would like to be treated", "Be kind to others and they will be kind
to you" and "Only say things that will build up rather than tear down".
My wife Tatty and I, having raised a family of nine children, sometimes
got tired of listening to ourselves repeating the same lessons over and
over! Imagine if we approached our relationships as St. Paul suggests
with humility, meekness, patience, bearing with one another lovingly.
What would our world be like if everyone were united together to work
for peace and unity?
We are all parts of the one body, each part insufficient without the
other parts. We need each other and need to work together united with
our God and our love for one another. We have been called by name to
work for the Kingdom on earth and for the one that awaits us in heaven
for all eternity.
Parents, take heart! Persevere in teaching your children no matter how
repetitious you think you sound. If we as parents don't persevere, the
teaching of the world is not a good alternative!
Guide our every thought, word and action
so that our children will learn of Your Way.
