St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 9

"You will shine in the world like bright stars." (Philippians 2:15)

One of the Church's worst temptations down the ages has been to slowly modify Jesus' radical teaching in order to make it acceptable to society. Jesus calls us to a radical commitment that places God first in our lives, and involves a refusal to conform to the worlds standards- and the values of mainstream society. Paul suggests that when we face God first we "will shine like bright stars." How can we make a difference in the world?

Lord, help us to live our lives according to your values, and to be bright stars showing your love and peace where we can. Amen.
