Share in the Goodness of the Lord

Today’s Scripture readings once again present us with a very difficult challenge, especially if we are of the mentality: I don’t want to get involved; I don’t want to risk displeasing or alienating anyone, a mentality, very common in our contemporary society which strenuously resists facing up to its evils.

From the standpoint of responsibilities, the first reading from the prophet Ezekiel is painfully clear: if we don’t try to correct the wicked, God will hold us responsible for their damnation. Notice that if one reads the larger context in the prophet Ezekiel, God is not guaranteeing success. He insists only that we try.

A different approach is made by St. Paul in the second reading, namely, what does it really mean to love one’s neighbor as oneself? Just as we correct our children because we love them and therefore want them to live a life of goodness, so we must effectively extend that intention to all.

Finally, in today’s gospel, Jesus’ words are also clear. He wants us to win our brothers away from sin, not to satisfy our own egos, but, out of love, to share in the goodness of the Lord.
