words of life

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for
refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness. – 2
Timothy 3:16

You’ve seen them on TV.
Each one professes to be right. Both quote the Bible expertly, using
God’s Word for defense and offense.
Yet, what they seem to achieve is more divisiveness. Insults and
provocations are their primary weapons as they tear down each other on
different channels. It’s saddening to note that the Good News is used
for destructive debates and un-Christian misinformation. They seem to
just one-up each other.
Overuse, misuse and abuse of Scriptures will never lead to God.
My friend Rene sends me text messages that contain God’s Word of hope
regularly. Often, they will strike me at the heart. They are just the
right words at the right time. That’s what Scriptures should do:
become a source of inspiration and personal words of God to you. Jun

REFLECTION:
Have you quoted the Bible to uplift somebody today?

Lord, You alone have the words of eternal life. Grant that I may be
Your witness.

COMPANION

1st READING

Paul tells us that “all Scripture is useful for teaching, reproof,
correction and training in righteousness.” Scripture is the basic
manual of Christian survival and we are mad if we do not use it
accordingly. There is nothing magical about reading and understanding
the Scriptures; there is a multitude of books to help the beginner and
the expert. We have no excuse. Reading Scripture has to be the bedrock
of our life of faith.

2 Timothy 3:10-17
10 You have followed my teaching, way of life, purpose, faith,
patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as
happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra, persecutions that I
endured. Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me. 12 In fact,
all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
13 But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse,
deceivers and deceived. 14 But you, remain faithful to what you have
learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it, 15
and that from infancy you have known the sacred scriptures, which are
capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ
Jesus. 16 All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,
for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17
so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every
good work.

P S A L M

Psalm 119:157, 160, 161, 165, 166, 168
R: O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
157 Though my persecutors and my foes are many, I turn notaway from
your decrees. (R) 160 Permanence is your word’s chief trait; each of
your just ordinances is everlasting. (R) 161 Princes persecute me
without cause but my heart stands in awe of your word. (R) 165 Those
who love your law have great peace, and for them there is no stumbling
block. (R) 166 I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and your commands I
fulfill. (R) 168 I keep your precepts and your decrees, for all my
ways are before you. (R)

G O S P E L

This rhetorical question, I believe, reinforces the notion that the
Messiah is a descendant of David. The crowd is pleased with Jesus’
argument as they seem to slowly accept Him as the Messiah. If that is
the case, they would definitely be happy as they have been longing for
a Messiah for centuries now.

Mark 12:35-37
35 As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said, “How do the
scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David? 36 David himself,
inspired by the Holy Spirit, said: “The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at
my right hand until I place your enemies under your feet.’ ” 37 David
himself calls him ‘lord’; so how is he his son?” The great crowd heard
this with delight.

my reflections
think: Reading Scripture has to be the bedrock of our life of faith.

SABBATH

INSPIRED OF GOD

I love poetry. I love songs, including pop, most especially if they
are poetic. I enjoy even the religious poems of Rumi, the classical
Muslim man of letters and mysticism. I love them, for they inspire me.
Oftentimes, they lift my sagging spirits. When I feel down, all I need
to do, besides prayer and even during prayer, is reach out for my
favourite lines from a favorite chanteur or chanteuse, poet or writer.
They inspire me, no doubt. But that is not to say that they are
inspired themselves. They console me alright, but in the same vein,
that does not mean that they lead me without fail to the God of
consolation, no matter if what they afford me appear to be divine and
heavenly consolations. The story of Paul, too, has always moved me in
many ways. Today’s first reading is one of those high points in Paul’s
life that do not fail to tug at my rather sensitive heart. Paul is
saying goodbye. He knew he is to die soon as he writes to his beloved
disciple, Timothy. His story of fidelity and love for the Lord is an
account that people could not easily gloss over. His story moves us,
inspires us and catapults us to higher levels of resolve and
resignation to the Divine Will.
But there is more to life than merely being lifted up emotionally. We
need more than just ephemeral emotional “highs” that come and go.
Today, Paul refers precisely to this God-given resource that serves
not merely as inspiration, but as solid basis for a life lived as God
would have us do. “All Scripture is inspired of God,” Paul avers, “and
is useful for teaching — for reproof, correction and training in
holiness so that the man of God may be fully competent and equipped
for every good work.”
It is definitely good to seek for inspiration from anywhere one can
get it. But it is best to seek for the God who inspires — the God who
is behind  book “inspired of God,” no less. Fr. Chito Dimaranan, SDB

Reflection Question:
Do I seek inspiration from Scriptures?

Lord Jesus, inflame my heart and mind with Your Word.

St. Breaca, pray for us.
