David LinsCatholic Thoughts

Living in Gratitude

07-14-2019David Lins

We often fall victim to thinking following Jesus is complicated. After all, the Catechism of the Catholic Church is a pretty thick book! Yet, I would submit that every word in that document is directed at helping us live out this Sunday's Gospel.

"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself… do this and you will live."

The directive is so simple, yet I have so far to go.

I've recently entered another season where the Lord is seeing fit to humble me. Right after we bought our townhome, our second car's repairs became more than it was worth. We are now a one car family. On top of that, I was recently carrying (what I thought was) a light box. It was too much for my back and the spinal stenosis pain came back full-force.
