(Our Lady of Mount Carmel)
If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts. Ps 95
Sometimes, beloved, God’s voice is not always praising us. Sometimes, God may actually be disappointed in the things we do or think. Sometimes, it just may be time for a little repentance. Today’s Scriptures remind us that not even the Biblical greats were always perfect. Moses murdered and fled Egypt, a fugitive. And in his time of hiding, Moses found that God had a bigger mission for him.
Jesus also, was often disappointed with the people who refused to change, to repent and grow in God’s grace. God calls us to repentance when we err in our ways. And if we listen closely He’ll have a greater mission for us as well. So, as difficult as it may be, sometimes we just need to soften up those hearts of pride and take a well deserved chastisement. It’ll all be worth it in the long run!
