Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students

I’ve seen it too many times in my life where people walk around telling people how virtuous and holy they are, but at the same time they commit acts of hate and injustice towards other people. It is not enough to walk around and say that you “know” God and you follow him, but also, your actions must show it. As the reading today says, “Whoever says he is in the light, yet hates his brother, is still in the darkness.” But, “Whoever loves his brother remains in the light, and there is nothing in him to cause a fall.”
Sometimes when we try and point out how well we follow God it is just an easy way out for us. It makes us seem more virtuous to those around us without having to put in any real effort. Taking this easy way out is not the proper solution however. We must instead find a way to develop positive habits in our everyday lives that allow us to continually love our brothers and sisters. Whether it is going out of our way to help someone out, or it simply showing everyone the respect that they deserve on a daily basis, it all contributes to living out our life in the way that God wants us to live.
