Making Things Right
Sunday, October 22, 2023
When the neighbour fills in the wetlands,
taking away a carbon sink and water purifier,
how does one make it right?
You shall not hate in your heart anyone of your kin; you shall reprove your neighbour, or you will incur guilt yourself.
My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness. Take care that you yourselves are not tempted.
Words of Grace For Today
It is more difficult than it sounds:
making all things right with someone who has done you wrong.
we have done God plenty of wrong,
though we certainly do not deserve it
makes all things right with us,
to spend the effort to
gently make all things right with those that do us wrong.
A little sounding task, that can take a whole life’s effort.
That’s what today is all about.
Each day’s today.
