Precious Gift ....

 

 

In our First Reading God is assuring Habbakuk that the upright man will live by his faithfulness, as the Prophet fears that he is unable to do anything bout the outrage nd violence all around.  We would seem to be living in similar times.  One thing is certain, we will never change anything or anybody if the way we live contradicts the faith we profess.


"You have been trusted to look after something precious" writes Paul to Timothy, reminding him to remain true to the gift of Faith he has received.  We so often talk about Faith being a gift, but do not always act as if we are pleased to have received it, as if we are lucky ones to have been chosen by God for his blessing.


Habbakuk lived towards the end of the 7th century BC, at a time when Israel was under heavy attack from he Chaldeans and in desperate straits.  His dialogue with God continues, concluding with the realisation that after bad times there will always be good times for those who are faithful to God, that the just will live their faithfulness, by their unwavering attachment to God.


Now that is a message we can pass on.


 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
