Mini-Meditations

About once a week, Chaplain Ron emails a spiritual vitamin pill to anyone interested in receiving a very short message that provides an opportunity to reflect on something other than work, school or home activities. The following is this week's mini-meditation and if you would like to have them sent directly to you, just email a simple "add me" note to ChaplainRon@dupageministries.org

AND THE LORD SAID TO SATAN, "HAVE YOU NOTICED
MY SERVANT JOB, AND THAT THERE IS NO ONE
ON EARTH LIKE HIM, FAULTLESS AND UPRIGHT,
FEARING GOD AND AVOIDING EVIL? HE STILL HOLDS FAST
TO HIS INNOCENCE ALTHOUGH YOU INCITED ME
AGAINST HIM TO RUIN HIM WITHOUT CAUSE."
Job 2: 3

Many of us might be following the examples of saints like Francis of Assisi or others.
Stories of saints often tell of the great things they did with little about the struggles they
had to endure. Their road on earth was paved with holy things to do and little to cause
despair.

Job might be a better example of our lives where everyday things seem to keep going
wrong. The devil might not be working overtime on us but it sure feels like it.

As bad things happen to us, we have a choice to make. Do we want to remain cheerful
remembering all the blessings given us, or do we want to live in misery blaming others
for our crosses?

Think of some of the people you know! Isn't it amazing that those who seem to have the
least worldly possessions or suffer the greatest diseases are often the most cheerful.

Peace,

Deacon Ron
