Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - Matthew 22:34:40

Read 172 Times

Matthew 22:34:40


You may feel some sympathy with the Jews struggling to cope with 613 laws and wondering which were the important ones. Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the rules and regulations of your own tradition? And have you ever been blessed by meeting someone, or reading something, that was able to cut through all the layers and point out to you what is essential in life? Who was that person? what did s/he say or do? Is there some phrase or text that encapsulates such wisdom for you?

If you were asked what is most important in life, what would your answer be? Recall the experiences and relationships you have had. Which are the ones you treasure most? what has particularly enriched your life? How would you encourage another person who asked you how s/he could live a full life?

In the unusual circumstances of recent year social life was disrupted by Covid. We had to find unusual and creative ways of showing love to our neighbours. What ways of reaching out to others did you find were most appreciated?
