No To Sin, Yes To Doing Good

07 March 2010

Today’s Readings: Ex 3:1-8. 13-15/Lk 13:1-9

The Gospel is saying that the end can come to anyone unexpectedly, righteous or vicious, thus the necessity for repentance includes everyone. The Gospel does not say that people perish in mishaps because they are sinners. Jesus’ words remind us that we must not think that we do not meet misfortunes because we are morally upright. We shall come to an end as part of God’s plan and so we are all called to repentance and to a fuller life.

Let us remember that the call to turn away sin in God’s gratuitous gift, a chance to make ourselves fruitful with yields of good works. In his compassion, Jesus is always giving us the chance to repent and be fruitful for the Lord wants everyone to be saved. Let us not just say no to sin, let us also say yes to doing good all the time. And let us remember that the opportunity to work for our good and that of others does not last forever.

Loving Father , help us to maximize your chances and value opportunities for repentance. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
