Our most fundamental struggle as humans is obedience to God. From our beginning, even in the very garden of Eden, we have failed to follow the Lord's commandments because we think that we know better than God, doubting his wisdom and love. Jesus tells us, "a house divided against itself will fall;" we cannot love God and yet refuse his guidance for us at the same time.
We must fully embrace God's plan for our lives and stop thinking that we know better than him if we are to find the true peace and mercy that comes from following the path of Jesus Christ. Now, during Lent, it is a time to reflect on where we stray from Christ's teachings, and to seek to better align ourselves with God's direction for our lives.
I appreciated the opportunity to write this for our Church! Thanks for putting this together!
