Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 42; John 10:11-18

What’s the ‘right thing’?

The problem Peter gets into in the first reading today is one we can readily identify with: trying so hard to do the 'right thing' that he loses sight of the bigger picture. Peter is preoccupied with 'keeping the rules' and so misses the meaning behind the rules – namely, that what God wants us to do is much more important than what we think we’re supposed to do. That can lead us into strife sometimes – but provided we keep our eyes fixed on God, we will make the right decision.
