Why is it easier for me to reconcile with someone who is not a family member than it is for me to reconcile with someone in my own family?
"If the world would apologize, I might consider a reconciliation."
Reconciliation comes easy to me.
For a more enriching experience, go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, today's reading reminds me that the state of friction alone should make me feel uncomfortable enough to realize that this is not a normal state of being for my spirit. When I think about reconciliation, I wonder what if I didn't do anything to my 'brother' as indicated in the scripture below but yet the 'brother' did something to me, then wouldn't it be the brother that needs to reconcile with me and not vice versa? I understand brother (or sister) to mean anyone and everyone is our brother or sister in Your Eyes since we are all Your children.
I thought about this even further and see that not being in a state of reconciliation with anyone, much less someone I was close to should make me feel upset or have an unpleasant feeling that there was any kind of tension between us. So regardless of who caused the unpleasant situation, it is always up to each of us to settle 'our differences' with the other individual. Simply because we are Your child is all we need to know that reconciliation is always the prime place to be. Whether it is to be reconciled with a Loved one, reconciling our checkbook or to be reconciled with You . . reconciliation is a miracle in an of itself simply because it involves Love, commitment and effort. Oh what a powerful combination!
Father, I will admit, being a Christian is not the easiest thing in the world to do because the standards are so high and if it were easy then everyone would do it. It's not easy, but then again it is not hard either if I simply do the right thing. Even still, I am up for the challenge because it feels so Good to be so close to You and I choose Your Light and Your Son to direct my spiritual progression path. Thank You for this awareness and enLightenment today and everyday.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
34 "Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
36 and a man's foes will be those of his own household.
37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who Loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me;
38 and he who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.
39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.
40 He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me.
41 He who receives a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward."
1 And when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.
