This Gospel reading always reminds me why I need to pray for wisdom and discernment.
Luke 6: 1-5
This Gospel always reminds me why I have to pray for wisdom and discernment.
Each time I feel the need to break a rule I have a L-O-N-G conversation with myself. I think of the possible consequences, both intended and unintended.
I ask myself if I am being selfish. Am I doing this to benefit myself or is there some benefit for others?
My sister- in- law always asks if what we are contemplating is the loving thing to do? I have adopted her strategy.
I try to understand the purpose of the rule. Can I break the rule and still obey the spirit of the rule?
Lastly, I ask myself if I am being responsible.
My prayer is: Father, please give me the wisdom to know when to follow a rule and when to break it.
