6th Sunday of Easter - C (May 26, 2019)
“My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you.”
We chase after so many things – power, control, wealth, possessions, gadgets….
None of these can ever give us absolute satisfaction lasting peace.
Jesus spoke these words to Jesus shortly before he was taken away from the disciples, tortured, and crucified.
We know the rest of the story – from the experiences of those disciples.
These same words that Jesus speaks to us today might serve as a good reminder. Maybe I should reevaluate my value system.
Do I allow Jesus and his peace reign in my heart and my life?
