23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Ezekiel 33:7-9; Psalm 95; Romans 13:8-10; Matthew 18:15-20

Love always

Jesus knew we would have problems dealing with human short-comings in community. So he gave us some guidelines, all based on love. Be discreet. Persevere. Get others to help you. Be gentle but firm. Sometimes you have to let people go. Putting on the heart of Christ in these situations takes courage. I also find it takes patience combined with prayer. Social media allows us the ability to say whatever we like about people and send it around the globe – one person to many. Well, Jesus advises us, in conflict, to start with one on one.
