"You will show me the path to life, fullness of joys in your presence, the delights at your right hand."
A beautiful Psalm for a beautiful summery day! And, it's true, too! God will show us the path to life, right here in the midst of this crazy world. Living on God's path isn't incompatible to living in the world at all...it may be a little trickier, but God has given us all we need to live the Way. And there are people all over living in peace and justice...they just may not be on the news. It seems to me that the way to live God's path to life is to read and pray with the Gospels and see just what Jesus did. Jesus came in a terribly dicey time for his people. He went against the grain and surprised everyone by whom he scooped up--lepers, women of questionable character, the poor and disenfranchised. Jesus went straight to the bottom of the pecking order of his time and those were the people whose feet he washed. And that was the path to life...oh, it led him to the cross, which may not SEEM like life, but it was life, and abundant life at that! Today, is there anyone we can go out of our way to serve as Jesus served? If so, let's do it and relish that glorious path to life! Love, heidi
