Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Luke 12:54- 59
As a being that is human (from latin: humus meaning earth or soil), I am a phenomenal organization of earth and elements endowed with a mind and a soul that are divine, to put it mildly. As beloved children of Father God, each one of us has been given unique, whole and complete lives that have been designed through, and for, the Grace and Mercy of God. No wonder Jesus chided his disciples for apparently not knowing what to do and how to conduct themselves under the Roman regime and the corruption of the religious authorities of their day. He reminded them to remember who they were and to judge what is right! Human beings are designed to learn the ways and the wisdom of their Father in the context of earthly living and to proclaim and enact God’s ways in thought, word and deed. Will I embrace the prudence God has given me as I live out my days in this world – no matter how strange or challenging the circumstances? Holy Spirit help me judge what is right myself.
Teach me good judgement and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments. (Psalm 119)
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
Saint John Paul II
