Colossians 3:1-11; Psalm 145; Luke 6:20-26

God fills our emptiness

Both readings, as well as the psalm today, give us clear lessons for our Christian lives. Luke’s four beatitudes are challenging! It seems that when we are empty or needy for all sorts of reasons, God can fill us with himself. When we place all our security in money, reputation, or diversions we may find that we don’t really need God! It seems that emptiness of any kind can be filled by God – our riches, joy and our security will come from him! “The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season”. Are we able like Mary to allow the Lord to fill our emptiness with good things?
