Gospel: Luke 5:33-39
“New wine must be put into fresh skins”
Have you heard about Life Coaching, Personal Branding? There are so many programs out there with the objective of transforming into a “better version of ourselves”. Sounds familiar?
Jesus came and lived amongst us. Demonstrating his pure and all embracing love. His manner and disposition were often opposed and contradicted the common norm. It brought to the fore the saving love of God, the value and dignity of humans before anything else. Jesus taught us of love, mercy and compassion. Call it radical, life-changing and giving. It starts with a transformed heart that allows to be open to the truth of Jesus' teaching. This new heart that gives hope to others is the “fresh skin” where love, mercy and compassion flows.
Holy Trinity we pray for a new heart like yours. Amen.
