All creation is imbued and energized with the love of God.

Acts 17:24-25

“The God who made the world and all that is in it, the Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands, nor is he served by human hands because he needs anything. Rather it is he who gives everyone life and breath and everything.”

We cannot put God in a box.

In today’s verses, St. Paul is saying that human beings cannot contain or define the Creator who is infinite, ineffable and the Loving Source of all that is.

God gives freely while expecting nothing and needing nothing in return.

All that we have and all that surrounds us is pure gift.

It is not ours to hoard but to share.

If only we all knew this in our hearts and lived in that knowledge!

What a different world this would be!

Instead, there are many who are being unjustly treated in the world…many who are suffering in deplorable conditions.

Who will be the vessels of God’s compassion to them if not us?

Who will let them know that they are not forgotten?

Who will let them know that we are all one…in Christian lingo, all part of one Body of Christ?

It is our responsibility to be missionaries of mercy in bringing them the Good News of God’s unconditional Love.

While we can’t all be missionaries to distant countries…we can be missionaries to the person next door…and to the next person we meet.
