for Sunday, March 2, 2008

Jesus did all he could to bring the Pharisees to faith as well. He could see the potential in their hearts too, but they weren't willing to open their own eyes and see more clearly. Rather than doing so, they spread controversy and caused division. They seemed to be experts at doing that. They were wonderful at giving advice to others, but very poor at revealing by their own example the love and light of God. Their energy is spent in pointing fingers at others to try to conceal their own sin.

Original Sin has not been eradicated from the world. Each day we are faced with the temptation to take the easy way out. We can do the same things many others have done. We can compromise our values, act dishonestly and selfishly. We can examine others and tell our circle of friends all about them. We can cause confusion and undermine those who try to make progress. We can hold tightly to our old and prejudicial ways and refuse to forgive those who have harmed us. But we can also rise above these things.

We do that best when we open ourselves to the healing and enlightening power of God. God can remove from us those weaknesses and defects of character that we haven't been able to change by ourselves. All God needs is an invitation. We can open ourselves to God's healing, or we can keep God out.

Make room for the God who can save us and raise us up. Our weaknesses can be reminders that we need God. All we need to do is let God in.
