A REFLECTION OF THE HEART
PATER ALLEN BACLOR ABADINES
Every day we are confronted with a lot of questions. We sometimes ask ourselves about the meaning and purpose of life. Why is there a need to struggle in life? Why is the world filled not only with good things but of bad as well? What really matters in life? And where is this journey leading me to? etc. Questions like these are worth pondering upon. Certainly, Scriptures could help us find the answers we’ve been looking for. The Bible comes from the Greek word “Biblos” meaning book or books. It also means “God-breathed” 2 Timothy 3: 16. We, therefore, allow contemplation of the Word of God our daily habit. Just like the air that we breathe, the Word of God sustains and nourishes our spirit. When you seek guidance and direction read the Scriptures. The Word Of God directs us to wisdom. It gives peace and joy to our lonely soul.
