Be prepared and be disciplined in your journey towards the Lord. It is a narrow gate that we are aiming for and it is our choice to meet that commitment to live the straight and narrow path today, or wait when the time might be too late and the door will be shut on us.
God treats you as sons. For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline? At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it.Hebrews 12:5-7
How do you, among your community, family, or parish welcome the stranger in your midst? How do you make room in your life for those who are different from you?
