BEING A LIVING EXAMPLE Lk 4:16-30

Sometimes it can be difficult to make the right choices as to what to do in our lives because it means standing out from the crowd; because it means being different and choosing not to belong when this is the last thing that we want to do. I have every sympathy with this sort of reaction as I remember it all too well in my teenage years when I was faced with such decisions. Unfortunately, I cannot say that I made the right and heroic choice every time.

St Paul exhorts the Thessalonians to put behind them the ways of their past life. We all know the struggle to combat the sin in our lives once we have allowed it to enter in. How often have we rued the day we first allowed a particular sin into our lives? It would be so much easier to combat the sin if I had not allowed it in that very first time. Well, let us pray that we learn from our mistakes and do not allow any new sins to become problems for us. We already have more than enough to deal with as it is!
