The Sun And Our Lord
“For I desire mercy, not sacrifice and acknowledgement of God
rather than burnt offerings.” Hos 6:3
God’s mercy reminds us to be humble and kind to others. To remember that He will save us “as surely as the sun rises, He will appear.” The sun rises each day with such clarity, determination and dependability. It is unconditional in its warmth and light. This is our Lord. He’s always there, if we just look around us. We just have to stop during our busy day to reflect and to appreciate God’s warmth and light.
In our society, sacrifice is not revered or talked about. In this season of Lent, sacrifice can be doing something for others before yourself, daily prayer, or reconciliation. Sacrifice can also mean giving something up for Lent. In turn, our sacrifice during Lent can help us to be merciful to others.
Let us pray we can be merciful and sacrifice in accordance with God’s will. Amen.
