No one knows what tomorrow will bring

Wednesday, 26-2-2014

Readings of the day:

James 4:13-17
Psalm 49:2-3, 6-11
Mark 9:38-40

Reflections:

You have no idea what your life will be like tomorrow. -James 4:14

Mortals we are, limited in the determination of how neatly our life would play out tomorrow. We may be here today, and in the very next minute –be gone. With this in mind, we should always place our plans, thoughts and deeds into God’s hands in trust and hope.

For it is a clear fact: rich and poor, strong and weak, learned and unlearned; all would pass away. The best we can do for ourselves is live a life in communion with God; a life of truth, love and friendship. We shouldn’t get overly attached to passing things, for all is crumbles and clay. In the words of St. Jose maria Escriva, “Put your hope in Jesus. You yourself have nothing, are worth nothing, can do nothing. He will act if only you abandon yourself to him.”

In full trust in God, let us abandon ourselves to him daily, trusting in his divine providence and counting on his love for our tomorrow. In the end, as we leave the things of this earth, we would be confident of seeing the one who we have walked solely with on earth.

May God help us, we pray!

Peace and Love of Christ!
