Thought for the Day Unless we can trust

Thought for the Day

Unless we can trust that we will be sustained, we cannot rest. If we believe that our wellbeing is entirely in our own hands, we cannot rest. If we are afraid that someone else will come and take what is ours, we will never rest. In our world, where we are increasingly driven by achievement, consumption, and self-protection, it is no wonder that we are burning out.

But, if we are to find rest – for ourselves and for those around us – we will need to learn to embrace God’s ways of simplicity, service and sacrifice. Only once we are all safe, provided for and respected will our society find the rest it craves. This is the prophetic message of this week’s readings.
