Written obligations

June 25, 2014 2:52 pm

“…for the anger of the LORD has been set furiously ablaze against us, because our fathers did not obey the stipulations of this book, nor fulfil our written obligations.” (2 Kings 22: 13)

Our Lord talks to us every day. Daily readings give us a small portion of the whole Bible, like the Father who feeds His children. Rejecting His words puts us in danger, not because “of the anger of the Lord,” but because we will be weaker. His “anger” is the description of His love to us, and His “written obligation” is to keep us strong in love, persevering in hope and confident in faith.

“The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
