We strongly empathise with the disciples in today’s reading. The lesson we learned is not to allow culture, tradition and doctrine to be the basis of our faith. Acceptance of Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, searching the Bible and following God’s path are the foundations of our Christian faith. God is our tie that binds.
O God, when we fail to see what you see in us, open our eyes and our hearts, and send us out together to be your voice. Amen. — MHD
