3rd Sunday after Pentecost 2019
Although some might think it unbecoming for God to become a man, Our Lord chose this path to teach us humility. All the saints excelled in this virtue and without it we cannot be saved. Pride is the characteristic vice of Luther and all those who are lost. Even in daily life people do not like those who are proud. Some wonder why bad people prosper while the good suffer in this life. The good are given the opportunity to imitate Christ and gain merit for heaven while the evil are given a reward in this life for whatever good they do because they cannot receive any reward in hell. Practice humility and be assured of heaven.
