Two Ways to Be Near Jesus

The Evil One often uses the mixed motives of others in an attempt to distract us from God’s will. The root of the word for the “testing” by the lawyer is the same one Luke uses to describe the temptation of Jesus by the devil in the desert (Luke 4:2)even a more intense form of the word. Yet Jesus is up to the challenge.

Heady questions that fill committee rooms can distract us, while abuse and mugging could be taking place just outside the door. The two priestly types missed the chance to be near Jesus who was within the man in great need. “I was sick and you took care of me” (Matt 25:36).

There are moments to find Jesus in another in need … and momentsas Mary foundto sit at his feet and listen to his Word. Do not miss either today.
