People like to complain, right; I do it, ask my wife…… Take the first reading from Exodus, 7: 3-7. If you go back one verse, to verse 2, it says: Therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said; “Give us water that we may drink.” And Moses said to them, “Why do you quarrel with me and why do you test The Lord?” This explains why the place was called Meribah which means “ARGUMENT” Moses said; “A little more and they will stone me.” One must remember, The Lord God supplies everything you need. The message is clear. You should pray as though everything depends on God, and you should work as everything depends on you! Then good things will happen. Do less complaining and more praying and God will give you more, amen!
Good Day & God Bless, Deacon Archie
“10 THINGS to REMEMBER for LENT”
by Bishop David L. Ricken of Green Bay, Wisconsin, former chairman of the Committee of Evangelization of Catechesis. For the next few weeks we will go through his list.
- It’s about dying to yourself. The more serious side of Lenten disciple is that it’s about more than self-control, it’s about finding aspects of yourself that are less than Christ-like and letting them die. The suffering and death of Christ are foremost on our minds during Lent, and we join in these mysteries by suffering, dying with Christ and being resurrected in a purified form.
- Don’t do too much. It’s tempting to make Lend some ambitious period of personal reinvention, but it’s best to keep it simple and focused. There’s a reason the Church works on these mysteries year after year. We spend our entire lives growing closer to God. Don’t try to cram it all in one Lent. That’s a recipe for failure.
