“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Colossians 3:1-2

TODAY’S WORD…

.

You have been raised to life with Christ,

so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven,

where Christ sits on His throne at the right side of God.

Keep your minds fixed on things there,

not on things here on earth.

.

– Colossians 3:1-2 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

We need to seek the "things that are in heaven",

that is, the things of God.

.

In our pilgrimage to the Heavenly City

we Christians are to seek and relish the things that are from above.

This involves not a lesser, but a greater commitment to working with all men

to build a world that is more human

– a world that needs to sometimes stop and acknowledge God as its Creator,

and strive to always act charitably and dutifully, and in accordance with His will.

.

If we are looking for true joy and happiness,

then we should not set our affections upon the things of this world

– we should live above this, setting our sights on God,

remembering what Jesus tells us

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

.

QUOTE…

.

"The true Christian, who acts according to this faith,

always has his sights set on God.

His outlook is supernatural.

He works in this world of ours, which he loves passionately;

he is involved in all its challenges,

but all the while his eyes are fixed on Heaven"

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
