“God’s Reign in the Institution of Marriage and Formation of Family”
7th Sunday In Kingdomtide
World Communion Sunday
Way back in 2019, I received a call from a kasambahay and told me to come to her master’s house because the family is under attack. Huh? Was my first reaction. Pastor, they are arguing… Si sir and mam, sir and the two kids, mam and the two kids. At that moment after a brief prayer, I went straight to the house of one of our members.
Upon reaching the door, I heard the children arguing with their parents. And their arguments were valid. Here’s one of the arguments: O c’mon, it was you who taught us how to stand alone. It was you who taught us how to walk. It was you who taught us how to talk and boy we saw how happy you were when we stood up alone, walked alone and we talked while walking. And now here you are telling us to sit down and shut up…
Brothers and sisters, today, we will tackle and meditate on the words of the Lord pertaining to Family life and issues. To begin with, how is your family?
Though at this very moment I am facing only a monitor but I can clearly imagine, you are smiling and simply nodding your head as if to say, “we are ok…” But where is God in your family? And to all parents out there, to every husband and wife out there – where is God in your marriage life?
