Compete well

September 29, 2019 6:00 am

“But you, man of God, pursue righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. Compete well for the faith.” (1 TM 6: 11-12)

Whatever is really important in our lives (like love or prayers) is protected by freedom. We can’t force others to love, for example, us. And we cannot force others to pray. We need freedom, because it takes a lot of effort, it takes time, it takes failure and uprisings to keep the strong and beautiful relationship. We need to “compete well.”

“Though our Lord Jesus Christ was rich, he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (Gospel Acclamation)
