The readings challenge us to choose the values of forgiveness, fidelity and honesty at all times; In choosing such values we choose God’s wisdom which, though may appear foolishness, in fact transforms us into the best version of ourselves. This week, choose to forgive someone who has hurt you, live faithfully and honestly. That is the best version of yourself. You will see the difference in your life; in your family; in the work place. The choice is yours.


When we talk about what God expects of us, He expects us to reach out and care. He expects us to have a feel for each other, not to be locked up in our isolated little lives, not feeling that we have to achieve all kinds of things
