Meditation Moment - 07.30.10
‘This is the carpenter’s son, surely?’
How mean people can be! Those from Jesus’ home town couldn’t believe such a gifted and impressive person could be from one of themselves. Indeed, how can a carpenter be God?
Lord, help us to open our eyes and hearts.
Touch us so that we can see the greatness of our Father’s ways.
May we reach out—in our prayer and in our activities—to all the neglected and pre-judged ones in our world (the useless old, the wastrel young, the greedy refugee, the selfish brother).
Lord, these beloved are your gift to us.
May we find in them the unmeasurable span of your great love and the inspiring challenge of your presence.
