“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 12:25

TODAY’S WORD…

Jesus said, “Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity.”

– John 12:25

 

REFLECTION…

Persons who put aside God’s commandments so as to preserve their worldly life, and their comfort and security, and short-lived pleasures, will lose eternal life.

Those who are prepared to risk or lose their comfort and worldly life in order to do God’s will and live His commandments, shall find everlasting life.

 

QUOTE…

“…this fundamental principle that the Lord establishes is, in the final analysis, simply identical with the principle of love. Love, in fact, means leaving yourself behind, giving yourself, not wanting to hold on to yourself, but becoming free from yourself: not getting preoccupied with yourself – what will become of me – but looking ahead, toward the other – toward God and the people whom He sends to me.

It is this principle of love that defines man’s journey, it is once again identical with the mystery of the cross, with the mystery of death and resurrection that we encounter in Christ.”    – Pope Benedict XVI

 

PRAYER…

My Lord, my God, I want to look ahead and do Your will.

Help me place my entire trust in You.
