Wednesday 7 December
There is nothing worse than a diversion. Instead of arriving at Aunty Flo’s on time, just as you get close, you are forced on the diversion. Stuck in a line of other hapless drivers, on unfamiliar roads, with huge queues at all the junctions. You see, these other roads are not designed to get you to Aunty Flo.
We are told in this week’s readings to make the roads straight and level. We are told to get on the right road to God, or we could say, to get on the right road back to God. Try not to get diverted, but set your face towards his presence here with us.
Align yourself with him through confession, Holy Communion, time in prayer and in service to others. These are the roads designed to take us to him, even as he comes to us.
Make straight the path!
Help me Lord, in the diversions of today, to find time to straighten my path to you. May I find you in word and in sacrament, as I pray for myself and those in need of you….
Come Lord Jesus.
