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!
