Take the lesson to heart

On the eve of Catechetical Sunday, it’s good to reflect on our task of teaching the next generation matters of the Spirit. One comment heard too often when bad things happen is that "God must have a reason for doing this." Or, "It must be God’s will." Looking at the biblical testimony, however, leads to the realization that most of the bad things that happen are not God’s will at all but the work of sinful people. God says, "Feed the hungry" and children starve. God says, "Do not kill" and people murder. Let’s teach our kids what’s on God, and what’s on us.

Today’s readings:

1 Timothy 6:13-16; Luke 8:4-15 (448).

"[T]he Devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts."
