About Today Readings

Acts 28:16-20, 30-31. Psalm 10(11):4-5, 7. John 21:20-25.

The just will gaze on your face, O Lord—Psalm 10(11):4-5, 7.

The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.

The theme running through today’s readings is that one should stand one’s ground and leave vindication to God.

We don’t judge people for being unbelievers. We don’t claim to be superior to others because we believe in God. We don’t claim that our exercise of freedom of conscience is superior to theirs. Instead we approach God with total faith and trust, and with real determination to do God’s will as we perceive it.

We may be only moderately successful in this; but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that we persist in our efforts to love and serve the living God. Everything else remains in the hands of God, where it should be.
