Sunday Reflection

Sunday reflection 21-08-2016

When a newborn baby arrives, the love parents feel for the child can sometimes be overwhelming, but you very often hear parents say – that’s the end of freedom now for a good few years. Love may narrow their lives, but it also deepens and enriches it.
We can find a lot of variety in life today but sometimes very little depth. We can look for wide doors which lead to narrow gardens, unlike the narrow door of Jesus which leads to an eternal garden.
Love demands a lot as well as giving great rewards. Love for a sick child, the elderly, the husband/wife needing care in illness or old age. This is the world of love, the only world worth sacrificing anything for.
The condition for entering the world of love is not where you come from, whether you are first or last, whether you wear the right clothes or even turn up on time, it is loving our neighbour’s as ourselves and living out the word of God.
