At times we forget that our family, our loved ones, our friends are the most important people at this moment.
“I have seen a grievous evil under the sun: wealth hoarded to the harm of its owners, or wealth lost through some misfortune so that when they have children there is nothing left for them to inherit.” Ecclesiastes 5:13-14
Sometimes bad habits corner us and blind us. We lose our principles and only consider clinging to loneliness. The gates of chaos open, where superficial needs prevail.
Insufficient clarity and love lead us to idolize characters we do not know in-depth.
We design to love people who do not let us grow as human beings. These are the moments when we must identify what is holding us back. Immediately, we must remove it with the help of the Holy Spirit. Praying daily so that we can start the change. So that we can make the decision and, with the help of The Lord, we can see the fruit of such decision.
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.” Deuteronomy 28:1-6
There will never be a moment when we need to acknowledge our limitations as practitioners of the Faith. To be able to recognize it and compare it with our peers. This exercise offers us a space of understanding in which we are given an opportunity. It is that opportunity to be able to understand that we can all make mistakes at some point. We have to forgive ourselves. Today, now. To be able to give ourselves new occasions to rediscover the path of Faith.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
To err is human, to forgive is divine. It is the basis of all meaning in the daily construction of our thoughts and prayers, always entrusted to The Lord.
The path of life, the destiny of Faith that we are traveling is crossed by difficulties. Problems that we can neither manage nor anticipate.
