The peace of the Lord be with you.
At the time of the early Christian community much like today there were many religions with competing views about God and leading a holy life. Like those gathered around Paul in our reading, many of these people had sincere questions and a desire to find God.
Our reading today gives both a brief but very accurate explanation of God and God’s nature. Paul also addresses how he sees people searching for and how natural it is that we have a desire to go back to our source. We not only seek this of out our desire for God, but God’s desire for us. God wants us to have relationship with him and enjoy all that he has created to make our lives free and fulfilling.
Today, I invite you to take a moment to appreciate what and how God provides for you, your family, and those you love. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
