Where is Your Focus?

20 Jul 2014 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on Where is Your Focus?

DSC_6776Fundamental to our Christian faith is the awareness that we constantly need conversion in order to get on the same wavelength as Jesus in loving the Father before all else (including ourselves). In reality we are always getting distracted and loosing focus. Fortunately, as the book of Wisdom reminds us in today’s reading: “…though you (God) are master of might, you judge with clemency and with much lenience you govern us.”

While St. Paul in the epistle to the Romans encourages us: “The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness…” At the same time we need to be ever aware that this world we live in surrounds us with constant distractions, which if we let them, can choke off the promptings of the Spirit just as the weeds of today’s Gospel parable can strangle the grain.
