Deacon Pat White Horse Carda (SD) - Lenten Reflection

From the Diocese of South Dakota Lenten Reflection Book: Thursday, March 17th

Suggested Readings: Psalms 50, 59, 60, Deuteronomy 9:23-10:5, Hebrews 4:1-10, John 3:16-21

"The great love of God towards the world is reflected in the Word of the Lord. We know judgment day is part of life and God has told us that believers will have eternal life. God made covenants with us. The Ten Commandments and other laws and has high expectations that we will demonstrate patience, humility, compassion, kindness and love for all. I start the day with: God, thank you for loving me and the whole world. Thank you for reaching out again and again to save me from myself. Move me, too, to love the world as you do.

Amen, Take some time, pause for a few moments now to present yourself to God and ask that you might gain some new insight into this challenge that has faced us from the beginning. Do what is true and remember, God’s greatest gift is Love, and it is all about God!"
