Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 25, A.D. 2002

Ephesians 4:1-6
Psalm 24:1-6
Luke 12:54-59


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!

Holy Spirit:
Guide our every thought, word and action
so that our children will learn of Your Way.
Amen!
