Some thoughts on today’s scripture

Our sins of omission are mainly based on fear of committing to Gos-pel values, unsure what they will cost us. We may want to reach Easter but bypass Good Friday. However the Gospel entails both. “No cross no crown.” We must bear short-term pain for long-term gain. There is a cost in Pentecost, and living the Christian vocation involves a kind of dying to oneself in the service of others.

This prospect can cause us to hold back, to delay, to put off needed action, in the hope that the challenge may go away by itself.

This includes behaviour-patterns, addictions, compulsions, and injus-tice to others. We keep postponing and hesitating. This is something on which to reflect today.
