Bear Wrongs Patiently

15th Sunday after Pentecost 2016

Father speaks on the topic of our fallen nature versus grace, wherein grace acts as a curb to our tendencies to rail against and provoke our neighbor.  As Christ was often criticized by the crowd while he was preaching, so we are subject to the same sort of provocations by our neighbors.  As He bared wrongs patiently, so must we with the help of grace that He sends us.  It’s easy to fly off the handle but far more difficult, and profitable to our souls, to suffer in silence and leave the matter to God Himself.  Jesus was moved by the tears of the widow and so will be moved by our tears and sufferings at Judgment time.
