Bible Readings: Eph4:1-6;Lk 12:54-59

 

A small boy was excitedly opening a toy automobile, but found that it required a good deal of assembly. Try as he might, he could not get the carport together, and with a cry he threw some of the pieces across the room. The frustration of not being able to accomplish what seemed simple was devastating to the boy. Attempting to live a good Christian life can be just as frustrating sometimes. St Paul explains what a good Christian life is: It is “to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph 4:3). Some people seem to be disruptive by nature. Their conversation usually ends in arguments. If everyone wants to do one thing, they insist on doing the opposite. When they don’t get their way, all they do is complain. The Sacrament of Baptism has united us with Christ and with one another. We are called to give expression to that unity in actual fact. Jesus asks us to watch for the signs of times. “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say shower is coming” (Lk 12:54). So too, we should watch for the signs of cracks in our relationships. We need to mend them early before they split open. It is not good to defer until tomorrow to make peace, for tomorrow’s sun may never rise to some. There is no point in always getting ready to unite, but never uniting. .
