Daily homily thoughts, 1/5

Today St. John reminds us in our first reading, “God is greater than our hearts.”  Isn’t that wonderful? So many people–maybe we’re all guilty of this–think their feelings are the end all, be all. In other words, my feelings are the only thing that matters.  My feeling determine if I go to church or not, if I pray or not, if I do this or that or not, if I blah blah blah….  God is greater than all that.
