October 15th: Am I bridge or barrier?

“Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.” Luke11: 47-54


We have heard “to whom much is given, much is expected”. Luke 11:53 also alludes to that principle. Knowing about God; about our faith; about how we are called to live, requires us to bring others to have a closer relationship with God, and inspire them to want to share that knowledge as well.  Jesus did just that. He not only shared what He knew, but also by the way He lived, brought people to know God.


How about us?  There are many persons looking for an extra dose of love, mercy and peace… Woe to us who, because of our actions and/or inactions, cause others to perceive that there is no value in a life in Christ. Also, as parents, do we ensure that we pass on important values like love, patience, humility, kindness which shaped us, or do we focus mainly on providing our children with material ‘treasures’ we didn’t have growing up?


Lord, as we come to know more about you, help us to be a bridge to you, not a barrier.
