Valuing the gift

At the heart of our faith is a deeply personal relationship with Jesus – ‘I know them and they follow me.’ It is a wonderful, precious gift. But sometimes we can take it for granted or, like the Jews in the first reading, fail to appreciate just what we have been given. That happens particularly when we forget that it is ‘gift’ and begin to think it is our right or entitlement. Take time today to reflect on the gift we have each received – the gift of love that ensures that we will never be lost – and give thanks for it.
