A challenge to me from Jesus
The sermon at St. Ignatius this morning was one of the most moving ones I have ever heard. The Gospel reading was from the portion in Matthew from the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus tells people not to worry about financial issues, God will provide. (Matthew 6, 25-34)
He led the entire audience through a guided meditation. It was extremely moving and impressive.
And a real challenge to me. I am obsessed with the fear of going broke again. It haunts my waking thoughts and my nightmares asleep. I am tormented by it. Unfortunately, it is always with me.
How great would my life be if I could trust in God and let go…
