When we listen to and put into practice God’s commandments to love Him with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strengths and to love our neighbors as He loves them, then we become truly wise and intelligent people. By doing so, we let God enter into our lives and be close to us. He has give us this Way, Truth, and Life for a reason and the reason is this: to become living sacraments of His Love, Mercy, and Grace to all the world. Becoming signs that not only show people that God is Good, but also bring that goodness about through our thoughts, words, and works. However, in order for us to fulfill God’s Divine Plan of Love, we have to be on our guard, to remember everything God has done for us, and teach other generations to do the same.
Do we listen to and put into practice God’s commandments to love Him and His children? What do we do to make God the center of our lives? How do we answer the call to be vigilant in our faith, courageous in our hope, and constant in our loving proclamation of the Good News to all?
O Lord, make us into truly wise and intelligent people.
