The wolves are circling. They cycle daily through screens that are full of hatred and mouths that are full of deceit. They loop around the news and the gossip and the refreshed feed on your Twitter page.
And it all feels so heavy, doesn’t it? The division, the confusion, the anger, the fear—it is enough to make even the strongest among us feel weary.
The truth is that this mission we were all called to was never supposed to be easy. “Behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves,” Jesus says in today’s Gospel (Luke 10:3). And I know it’s scary sometimes. I know you see the suffering and feel the pain and absorb the division.
Take heart, dear sister. Because when the world feels heavy and burdened and dark, we can offer it the peace that resides within.
“Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘peace to this household’” (Luke 10:5).
I find it beautiful that today’s Gospel instructs us to approach in peace. In fact, it is the very first thing we are called to do. Because though the wolves consume our daily lives, a deep -eated peace still comes with knowing Christ, a calm breaks through the chaos. Peace is the antidote to the turmoil, the reconciliation for the hearts that are full of hurt.
So, when the world around you feels angry and bitter and cold, offer it peace. It is the hope the world needs.When the world feels heavy and burdened and dark, we can offer it the peace that resides within. // @IamBritCal Click To Tweet
