Monday 4th week of Lent
While most of the people are adhering to the self distancing and self isolation requirements for combating the coronavirus pandemic I am disheartened and disappointed in the significantly large group who decide to ignore it.
I guess we live in an age of instant gratification where I must satisfy my wants, desire, urges NOW without forethought on consequences. If endangering others is a result well, tough luck for them; it's all about me.
In Genesis Cain asked 'am I my brother's keeper'? How tragic that this mentality is embedded in our human nature. Jesus' response was a resounding 'yes' and he was giving his life to show it.
Let's always strive to be good disciples. Stay safe.
The Season of Lent is a special time for us to slow down, look inward and make the necessary changes to truly become an Easter people.
