A menace to society is the result of educating in mind and not in morals. Let us teach our children to put first things first.
Thoughts For Today
Helping those in need isn’t about you. The wealthy often think they know what is best for everyone they deem “poor”. They think because someone is poor, they must be doing something wrong as if there’s always, without exception, a correlation between not having enough money and making bad decisions.
Inaccuracies and distortions in thinking create a multitude of problems with self-esteem, motivation and relationships. This includes our relationship with God. The goal then, is learning to tell ourselves the truth.
It is always a challenge to enter more deeply into the spirit of Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion. I often feel as if I cannot get where I want to be. As if the celebration of the passion of the Lord doesn’t penetrate my heart and life as much as it should—or as much as I want it to.
The story of the prodigal son is one of my favorite parables. I love how Jesus provides the example of the father’s immense generosity, compassion and mercy to teach us about who God really is.
