Loving Thoughts for the Soul
Some immortal words from the Hebrew Scriptures: “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live”. (Deuteronomy 30.19)
This is the great existential judgement that faces all of us. Do we choose right or wrong? Do we take the path of life or the road to death?
Lent is much more than giving up something, far more than just resisting the temptation of eating yet another slice of chocolate cake (and I myself find it very hard to resist!). At its heart, it is about our very existence as human beings for our short span of life on this earth. It challenges us to examine the very inner core of our being, to examine our consciences. How shall I live? How can I live that others may have life and enjoy it in all its fullness? These are the questions that really matter.
