The main theme of today’s Readings is that Christian life is a series of daily choices for God or against God, as we choose to live out or reject the truths He has revealed through His Prophets in the Old Testament and especially through His Son Jesus in the New Testament. The fundamental choice we make determines how we live our lives, deciding whom we will serve in this life.
A climber fell off a cliff. As he tumbled down into a deep gorge he grabbed hold of a branch of a small tree. “Help” he shouted. “Is there anyone up there?” A deep voice from the sky echoed through the gorge. “I will help you, my son. But first you must have Faith in me.” “All right, all right. I trust you.” answered the man. The voice replied, “Let go the branch.” There was a long pause and the man shouted again, “Is there anyone else up there?”
