Fourth Friday of Lent

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. The LORD confronts the evildoers, to destroy remembrance of them from the earth. When the just cry out, the LORD hears them, and from all their distress he rescues them.

Ultimately, we will be sorted into one of two categories: the just or the evildoers. There is no middle ground with God. We cannot walk the line between good and evil. We cannot pretend indifference. We cannot refuse to make a choice. We will either be good and faithful servants or we shall be evil and rebellious tenants. When the Day of Judgment comes, and it will for us all, we shall stand before God and have to answer for all we have done and not done. If we have chosen wrong over right, then we shall be destroyed. If we have avoided evil and done good, then we shall have eternal life. Those are the only two paths open to us. Hopefully, we shall choose wisely and well.

Do we act justly toward God and His children? Are we willing to uproot the evils that seek to corrupt us? How can we make ourselves more open to being rescued from our distress?

O Lord, we cry out for your help in our times of need.
