Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

Our Friend

Everyone is looking for you. Mark 1:37

We are all looking for Him aren't we? When do we look for Him the most? Well, I know for me, when something bad is happening, happened, or is about to happen, I search for God. I search for His guidance. I want Him to tell me what to do. I want Him to tell me how to fix this!

Jesus spent some of His time here on Earth healing the sick: helping blind to see, curing incurable diseases. Can you imagine witnessing this? Wouldn't you seek this man out? This man who is our Savior with this power to heal? Of course we would. We would want Him to heal us or our loved ones too.

But it is also important that we spend time with Him as our friend. Wouldn't it be nice to talk to Jesus like a friend? To talk to Him about our day? To ask him questions about where we are going and doing?

We must remember that Jesus wants to be our friend. He wants to help us, but I bet He would also love for us to come to Him, just to come.

I talked further about this in another post from Mother Angelica if you're interested.
