Rom 1:16-25
Ps 19:2-3, 4-5
Lk 11:37-41

With today’s scripture readings, it can easily be seen that God’s wrath is real: it pertains to all his creations and to all those who live in this world. This is inevitable; although we may come from different parts of the world, our hearts will all be searched to see just how well we had lived our lives.

Yet, needless to say, we are all given a privilege by being on Earth and given a chance to share the love of God with anyone and everyone. Life isn’t all about pain and making sure that the “fools of this world” are punished for their sins. It is about love and forgiving those who have trespassed against us. So let us take today to thank someone, tell someone not only that we love them, but most of all God loves them and wants to get to know them. We are all connected to the Heavenly Father, but it is our choice to let him come into our lives and to let God wholeheartedly change us. And just as Christ told the Pharisees that everything inside and outside comes from God, we, as well as all of our possessions, are all a part of God’s wonderful yet mysterious creations. We could not earn the grace that God has freely given us: so let us share it with others! We are all loved and never forgotten by the Heavenly Father. Peace be with you today.
