On a Sabbath Jesus said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored. But they became enraged . . . Lk_6:6-11
Evil makes no common sense! And when evil loses (which it always does), it simply plots more evil. You see, evil doesn’t listen to rationality but it makes up lies and deceit in order to continue its evil. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist in today’s world to see the obvious nature of evil all around us, and those who perpetuate it.
Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them.” Mt 7:15-16
We must pray for our strength against them, beloved! We must keep firm in our faith in Jesus! And we must remain strong together in God’s call for peace and love and compassion and life!
Jesus said, “I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” Jn 16:33
You are in my prayers and love, always!
