Live Life Now
Looking at the Temple and remarking how it was adorned with fine stonework and votive offerings, Jesus said, ‘All these things you are staring at now – the time will come when not a single stone will be left on another: everything will be destroyed’
And Jesus reminds us that Things of this world, material possessions, beauty, titles and achievements and success and yes even our Life will have its end.
I was guiding a group of pilgrims in Rome and we came to Forum Romanum (The Roman Forum,) which was the political and religious centre in ancient Rome, in all its grandeur and beauty..all that was left were its ruins.
So Live well now, make the most of what God has given you, Love instead of hating, Make friends not enemies, serve and not being served, Enjoy Life and not destroy it because this is only one chance, one moment that God has given you and me.
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
