Readings: Wis 11:22-12:2. 2Thes 1:11-2:2. Lk 19:1-10
In life, there are characteristics and events that may look like disadvantages. This is especially when we compare ourselves to others. But also, even objectively, there are things that are truly disadvantages. They may be natural features, or circumstances, or experiences, or past words and deeds, or other characteristics, or modes of being.
Whatever they may be, they’re no excuses for NOT achieving God’s purpose for one’s life. One can always seek for ways of becoming and acting better. We can make use of the possible advantages and opportunities. We can repent. We can seek better learning opportunities and better connections. And in all this, we ought to be prepared for resistance and opposition, human and otherwise, against these efforts.
May Jesus Christ grant us new life in Him.
