Wisdom about life comes slowly and sometimes painfully. Hearing the ‘right’ answer at the ‘wrong’ time does not help us. We need to be ready and open to receiving the truth if it is to have any impact. Perhaps we can recall some occasions when it was the ‘right’ time for us to learn a truth about life. Remember our experiences of growing in understanding and truth. Jesus tells us to start small. In today’s Gospel, He is careful not to overburden his Disciples. He has lots more to say and to teach them, but it would be ‘too much’ for them now. Instead He gives them space. After He is gone, when the time is right and they have had time to reflect, He will send his Spirit to lead them in the right direction. That same Spirit is with us now, if we can make space to listen.
