Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: Luke 14:1-4
“so He took the man, healed him and dismissed Him.”
When we seek the presence of Jesus, and open ourselves to Him, with no pretenses, He accepts us fully, just like the man with dropsy. He need not apologize for his ailment, he stands before Jesus quietly, and awaits Jesus’ action. Much like the sick man, Jesus takes pity on us, He sees what’s in our hearts, the turmoil, the hurts, our intentions,
We don’t need to be ashamed, or envious of others, no need to cover up and present a false image. Jesus knows, He understands, and will answer our prayers, in His time. Let not our faith waver, let’s not stagger and still be proud. Before the Lord, there’s no ego to contend with,
Let’s live our lives as a testimony to Christ and make Him happy. Let others see our faith in our everyday lives, that way too we are able to convert the doubtful souls out there.
