We all know firsthand the temptations which draw us away from God. I know what my demons are, and I am sure that you are all too familiar with yours. But these forces need not have the last word. The last word belongs to God, and that word is love.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
A provocation for your day:
When you feel tempted today, listen for God speaking a word of love to you. Let love, not shame, but draw you forward on the way that leads to life.
