GOD'S WORD TODAY

Ecclesiastes 3:11
 
He made everything fitting its time, but he also set eternity in their hearts.
 
---- Mine, every thing that is created on earth has a life span all things exist for a moment in time. All living things come to being, grow and mature  and are expected to fulfill the purpose for which they were created. They age eventually and their life will cease and go back to the earth as dust. But God has placed in every man, woman and child eternity in the soul that He created and placed in every human person. This is because God loves you so much He could not stand the thought of you being lost forever as if you had never been. The Father, the Holy Spirit and I work together in helping you claim the destiny for which you were created. Happiness here on earth lies in knowing, loving and serving God and each other and  the hope of eternal bliss when you come to us, to claim the inheritance that was won for you on the Cross. You belong to Me, You belong to God, You have a wonderful  present and you have the joyful hope that when this present life comes to an end, I will come to take you to enjoy the ecstatic union  that you experience for just a while each morning in every Eucharistic. Now you experience for a moment then you will possess the fullness of joy in unending union with Me eternally.

GOD'S WORD TODAY

1 Samuel 16:7
 
"Do not judge by his looks or his stature for I have rejected him, the Lord does not judge as man judges; humans see with the eyes; the Lord sees the heart."
 
---- Mine, you are aware that you have a tendency to look at people and form snap judgments. This is often a human frailty. Physical attributes tend to lead most people in influencing how they interact with others. How often people are crushed, wounded and rejected because they did not fit into the acceptable cultural mold. How often people are overlooked because they are not the right height, the right complexion, lack the required physical attributes, or appearance by the often unrealistic standards set by other men and women like them.  Recall the times when you yourself was judged unfairly and looked down upon or looked over and keep this firmly before you.  Go beyond what the eyes see on the surface and let your gaze penetrate the heart. For it is in his or her deepest innermost being that a man or a woman is truly who they are. Great, noble, kind, generous, loving and giving. You miss the opportunity of making some great friends because you made a surface judgement based on the outside and never took the time or had the patience or courage to look at what really matters - to see someone as they truly are from the heart.  Look past the things that annoy you the irritations and go deeper and then you will find it easier to love as I do.
