The earth is the LORD’s and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it; (Ps 24:1)
We so easily delude ourselves into thinking that we control ourselves and the world in which we live. When things don’t ‘go to plan’, our fragile peace is disturbed. Yet, when we remember that the world is God’s and everything we have is gift, it allows us to have a ‘lighter grasp’ on what is going on. Because it is God’s world, we also need to focus on caring for our fellow humans along with the whole world, in all its glory and wonder, over which we are stewards.
Young people crave for a lived faith that has practical expressions in our everyday lives. The awesome responsibility of caring for each person and for the whole world is more than enough to keep each of us busy – every day of our lives.
Have a great week!
