Sometimes our lives seem like they are moving so fast that everything is new and we are losing things of importance. Other times the new things we encounter can seem exciting and refreshing. How is it we strike a balance between losing our sense of tradition, those things that ground us, while at the same time not becoming stale.
It seems the life of faith can sometimes feel like a ping pong match. On the one hand, a faith life is assenting to eternal truths. On the other hand, there is also the requirement to meet the needs of others in all we do as well.
God puts before us a blessing and a curse. Seems like an easy choice, a no-brainer. Who would not want to choose the blessing, to choose life?
