Holy Week is upon us. The following scripture quote is from today's readings.
I, the LORD, have called you for justice,
I have grasped you by the hand;
I formed you, and set you
as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
Our Father in Heaven calls us to be a source of light, love and peace. Given the social climate today, this simple and powerful verse is a call for each of us to contemplate our place in God's universe.
By our action, not words, can people near us see our love for Jesus?
A friend, many decades ago, posed a question to me, "Jay, what do you want written on your tombstone when you die?"
I think about this often. Weak and a sinner, I choose, "Husband, father, grandfather and a man who loved Jesus."
Have a blessed Holy Week.
God is good,
