God’s Love

Readings of the Day

Micah 7:14-15, 18-20

Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32

Grace and God’s love are wonderful gifts.  No matter what we do, we cannot lose these gifts, otherwise they would be conditional.  In addition, to these gifts, we discover that God’s love is merciful and compassionate.  In the reading from Micah we hear that God will cast our sins into the depths of the sea.  And in the gospel from Luke Jesus tells that Pharisees and Scribes, the Father rejoices when his children are found again.

Repentance of heart involves right action.  When we learn how to fully accept God into our lives, God will be able to share grace and love with us fully.  Today, let us consider what could be holding us back from such fullness.
