Entertained by the wonderful story of Tobit this week, the novella culminates in a lesson about finding courage.
We’ve all been discouraged and burdened at one time or another. What can be said to assure us that all will be well? Have courage. Be strong. Petition God as Tobit did. Have faith that God will send help in one form or another.
Angels are available to us and often come in the person of a son or daughter. Reflect with your family about the times you’ve assisted each other in difficult times. How did you assure one another that everything would be okay?
May your home always be a place of welcome and joy. God bless you.
