the Hebrew letter hePsalm 119:33-40


Lord, teach me . . . Give me insight . . . Turn away from me the taunts I dread . . .

We know that we have finally fallen in love with God when we admit that God is great and good.

God says: Despite what you may sometimes believe, I want to bring you to your fullest potential.  In the moment that I created you I also created a special hope for the world. And that special hope lies in you. All of my “laws” and “statutes” are nothing more than my desire to bring you to the one central law which is to love one another . . . even your enemies. This is the insight I have for you. It is this: that you are the promise and the hope of the world just as Jesus is. Follow him and you will see the impossible become possible before your very eyes.

We can never know what is possible until we ask. We can never know what is merciful until we forgive. We can never know what is fullness until we love.

Today we reflect on the fifth lesson in Psalm 119. It is a reminder that God created us with the potential to transform others in Christ. Tomorrow, Waw.

Jesus said to them: “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the house to send out laborers for the harvest.  Go on your way . . . Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals” . . . They returned rejoicing, and said: “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name”.  (Luke 10:2, 3-4, 17)
