“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 12:7

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Endure trials for the sake of discipline.

God is treating you as children;

for what child is there whom a parent does not discipline?

.

– Hebrews 12:7 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

God is our caring Father who exudes love

and who, for that same reason, disciplines us – training us in endurance and

self-control

so as to mould and strengthen our character and our resolve

as we go through life seeking to reach that ultimate destination He has prepared for us.

.

Much in the same manner as innocent little children love their father and trust Him,

so we too should be with God, our Heavenly Father.

.

We must love, revere, respect and trust Him,

fear offending Him,

and respect His Divine plan for us.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

The fact that God permits physical and even moral evil

is a mystery that God illuminates by His Son Jesus Christ

who died and rose to vanquish evil.

.

Faith gives us the certainty that God would not permit an evil

if he did not cause a good to come from that very evil,

by ways that we shall fully know only in eternal life.

.

– Catechism of the Catholic Church – CCC 324

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Abba, Father, guide me with Your love

and lead me to wisdom and discernment as I entrust my all to You.
