Jesus said to him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ (Mark 10:51)
As we each ‘get on with life’, it is easy that for many things that matter to us, including faith, we take a ‘whole headed’ approach. To use common parlance, we can ‘live in our heads’. Jesus’ question, aimed at the heart, brings us up short. What is my heart’s desire? Jesus’ question also calls us to strengthen our relationship with him.
There are many facets of modern life that can distract us from prayer & reflection. While we will provide such opportunities for our young people, we also need to remind them that God calls each of us into a deeper relationship with him. God loves each of us deeply and wants us to be whole. By becoming more whole, we become more holy since we more fully radiate our God-given goodness.
Have a great week!
