My reflection is from Living Faith:
(John the Baptist) was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which in lightened everyone… John 1:8–9
“John the Baptist had his sights set on Jesus. We learn through John’s voice and actions how deeply he sensed in his heart that Jesus was the divine light, God enfleshed in human form. Thus it was that John’s entire attention focused passionately on this relationship.At the same time, John remained humble in his calling and avoided thinking this was about making himself important.
As we come to the end of this year, why not take time to put ourselves in John‘s sandals. How much of our heart have we set on Jesus? When were we especially aware of the relationship we have with this beloved Teacher? if some of our attention on this relationship strayed, what caused this drifting apart? Perhaps you could have a conversation with John the Baptist. Ask him how he managed to keep his heart burning brightly for the person he wanted everyone to know and love.” Sr. Joyce Rupp, O.S.M.
Let us take time to reflect and rather than coming up with a bunch of resolutions, let us ask God what needs to be changed in our life.?
