God's Message For You Today, March 25, 2008

THE GOOD KIND
 
Mary of Magdala went and announced to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and what he told her. – John 20:18
 
He ate with them. Bonded with them. They took boat rides and mountain hikes together. He spoke to the crowds in parables but He would take them aside and explain its meanings to them. They were His best buddies. Barkada, as we would say in Filipino.
        So I would think that as soon as Jesus rose from the dead, He would have let the Apostles know first. But no. God, in His divine wisdom, chose a woman to be the first witness of His resurrection.
         There must be a reason. And I joke that He chose a woman to make sure that the news of His resurrection would spread to the ends of the earth.
        Face it, we women are generally more detailed when it comes to telling a story. And boy, can we retell them really fast! But it's not how detailed or how fast we can spread the news that matters but what kind of stories they are. Are they gossip that can destroy other's reputation? Or hearsay that will cause strife? Or chitchat that is negative and doesn't upbuild? Or is it good news that encourages, heals and gives strength to others?
        So go ahead, spread the news. But make sure it's a good one. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng
 
REFLECTION:
Seek Him and you will find Him.
 
Lord, help me to always remember that You are right within me, even if I don't feel it.
