Second Tuesday of Lent

Come now, let us set things right, says the LORD: Though your sins be like scarlet,
they may become white as snow; Though they be crimson red, they may become white as wool. If you are willing, and obey, you shall eat the good things of the land; But if you refuse and resist, the sword shall consume you.

God always gives us a chance to set things right. No matter how badly we’ve messed things up for ourselves or others, He always offers us a chance to redeem ourselves. He wants us to succeed in becoming good and faithful servants. Even though our sins might stain us, they can be washed away through contrition, penance, and God’s Mercy. All we have to do is be willing to make amends for our sins, imperfections, and failings and obey God’s Commandments. If we do these things, then we shall grow in faith, hope, and love and bear abundant fruits.

When we take a wrong turn in our lives, do we seek to set things right again? How can we cleanse ourselves of those sins that keep us from following in the footsteps of Christ? Are we truly willing to obey God in all things?

O Lord, we want to make amends for our sins. In what we have done and what we have failed to do.
