Today's Reflection

Hostility between mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law has almost become proverbial. But there are also other hostilities and divisions in the family. There is hostility between father and son and between son and father; hostility between siblings. Families get divided over petty issues at times and a man’s enemies sadly can be from among the members of his own household. However, there are other conflicts in the family that arise because of fidelity to Jesus. Those who stand for him and want to follow him pursuing the ideals he offers can and do become the butt of persecution. No relationship, howsoever dear, can come in the way of and be an obstacle to our fidelity to Jesus. He must always come first.
