Padre’s thought for the week
I am one of those people who has to move house a lot because of my job. Many of you with connections to the military will know this can be a pain (as well as exciting!). The secret is travel light! Over 2000 years ago, Jesus spoke about achieving peace in our lives and he explained that possessions and riches rust and decay, they get stolen and actually we can spend all our energy worrying about stuff! But that principle also applies to the internal ‘baggage’ we carry every day. Past hurts, guilt, shame, or anger over those who wronged us. So today give a moment to consider what stuff, heavy load, or baggage you can let go of so you can move more freely in the days ahead – Just a thought?
