Keep the Commandments

02-16-2020David Lins

This weekend, the first line of the first reading carries profound power.

“If you choose, you can keep the commandments, they will save you…”

We try so many different ways to be fulfilled. We keep thinking we’ve figured out what will do it.

Having children.
Children finally moving out.
Weight loss.
Becoming more attractive.
A bigger paycheck.
A bigger home.
A dream vacation.

But nothing seems to help the joy stick. And we don’t want to hear about the Faith. Because it couldn’t possibly be faith that would be the answer to what we are searching for.
