Today’s Reflection — July 29th, 2015

Praying for world peace in our time is one thing — acting for world peace in our time is another.  If you are praying for the right time to act for world peace, you are already missing your opportunity.  There is no wrong time to act for world peace.

You can hope for a hero to come to the rescue– or you can be that hero.

You see an opportunity to help others, take it.

I have many flaws.  One of them is a disapproval of those Christians who claim to know Christ but by their actions yet intentionally refuse to follow Christ.  I can’t stand hypocrisy especially from clergy.  I cannot always love my enemies– especially when my enemies are in such positions of power and authority over others and use their power and authority to destroy lives without remorse or care.

Jesus’ anger or disapproval towards the Pharisees and Sadducees is often my anger at times.  On the cross, He forgave them for what they didn’t know– He forgave them for their ignorance.  But those who willfully and knowingly persecute and cause harm and endanger the lives of others?  I suspect there should be anger directed towards them– but not at the expense of one’s own soul.
