What authority have you for acting like this?
Today’s reading has many aspects worthy of contemplation. Take a moment from your day to consider in whose name you act. Often people give directions with confidence because of a position they hold or due to the power of their will. When you make decisions and guide others where does your authority come from? Are your actions guided by the Good or Bad Spirit, and how do you discern the better choice? We are called to walk in the light, be humble and offer truth; in doing so there is no fear or selfishness.
