Daily homily thoughts, 9/25

In our psalm today we prayed, “Guide me Lord in the way of your commands.”  The commands of God — as we see in scripture and as taught by the Church — are sacred laws and we are called to follow them. Our collect at Mass said that all of the commands of God’s sacred law are founded upon love.  That is why every dogma exists, every teaching of the church that we have….it is all about love, even and maybe especially those we have a hard time accepting or living.  A lot of people neglect God’s commands, and in so doing, neglect love.  They waste their lives, “chasing after bubbles” as our first reading says, and we are “they” sometimes.
