Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 21, A.D. 2003

Genesis 37:3-4,12-13,17-28
Psalm 105:16-21
Matthew 21:33-43,45-46


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

The story of how Joseph's brothers sold him into slavery is almost unreal. To think that kind of jealousy could exist between brothers is something foreign to me. What is it that turns human hearts against one another making unspeakable crimes possible?

When I came to grips that it is sin that generates such aberrations, I began (believe it or not), to have hope that all the egregious activities of man against his brother could indeed be eradicated. What's more I came to know that such a momentous change was not (thankfully) going to depend on some slick psychological, social and economic "work arounds" or programs, but on the power and mercy of God and our cooperation with His grace.

In these difficult and unsure days let us take the time to reflect on how sin has mutated our human relationships and let us turn and return to God our only sure and certain remedy, our only hope.

Lord, all my hope is in Your mercy.
