Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 5 – 11 June 2016
‘”For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness.”
I remembered years ago when I was playing The Sims in our desktop computer. In that game, you are going to control people in their daily tasks. It works more like of a life simulator. The player directs them to do chores, go to works, to school or even create chaos. If something happens in the family your are playing with in the game, you can always quit without saving and everything will return to normal.
How we have wished that life is like that. If you don’t like what is happening then quit and then go back as if nothing happened. We wish that we have an Undo button similar when we create files in our computers.
But, in real life a button like that does not exist. We need to be extremely careful with what we do, we speak or we create. Since there is no quit or undo button in the real world, everything that we do in our lives will be committed permanently, with consequences. Responsibility and accountability comes into play into our lives.
Because we risk everything whatever we do or speak, we need God’s guidance to lead us into the right path. He alone can tell us what is good and what we should avoid. As we are incapable of knowing exactly the results of our actions, we need Him to guide us to serve as the light in the journey of life. In his guidance, we know that where He leads us is the best for us.
This week, let us ask for His guidance and wisdom to choose His way rather than ours.
God sees us more than we do.
