words of wisdom

Bible Study tonight.  It was good to be back after three weeks off for the holidays.  Sometimes what Jeff [Cavins] has to say is really good and sometimes what our pastor has to say is really good.  Sometimes both.

Things that caught my ear from Jeff:   Be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.  (Matthew 10:16)  Make your heart a project.  Develop your spiritual life.  Know yourself.  Be shrewd, wise, and innocent. 

The goal of the religious formation of our children is that they love God more than us.

A holy fear of God  is necessary to avoid sin and its consequences.

From the good monsignor after the video:   Be not afraid!  Be faithful!  Do not be complacent!  He further explained that if you are feeling comfortable with your spiritual life, then that's not good.  So conversely, I guess that makes it good news that I am not feeling real happy with mine right now!
