Weekly Reflection

The Gospels challenge us to the core

02-23-2020© LPi

The Gospels continue to challenge us to the core. This is especially true in the way our social relationships have developed.

Feeling safe and secure in the world are not things that come easily these days. Actually, we may find ourselves feeling more reservation, caution, reluctance, and fear than ever before. In a moment's notice, life can drastically change. When someone has been intentionally and violently hurt, especially someone we love, we can all too easily find ourselves very attracted to the Old Testament philosophy of "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."
