From Moments in Philippine Daily Inquirer 4th Sunday of Ordinary Time
So many times, we push away God from our lives, just because He confronts us, disturbs us or inconveniences us. But no matter how much and how long we ignore or deny Him, He will never leave our side nor abandon us. Foolish pride blinds us, but still, God never gives up on us.
Are you a “pushy” person? Ask yourself, why? Maybe you have a strong sense of mission and a keen drive for achievement or perfection. But remember that you just don’t go pushing people around. If you think you are entitled to do that, remember other people too are entitled to respect, understanding, compassion and love. Hello! Who do you think you are? Welcome to the human race.
