How do we teach others to make Jesus known and loved? A wise Cardinal once said, “Be teachers of the faithful and learn from the teachings of Jesus.”Just like in the story of the stoning, we are quick to pick up the stone and throw it. We need more stone catchers deflecting the words and actions of the stone throwers so the truth about Jesus comes out of hiding and we can clearly see and know Him.
To this day many do not acknowledge or see the good Jesus does for us. As followers of Christ we have the tremendous responsibility to open eyes and make Him known! Ask your family if they have seen Jesus or witnessed the sight of Jesus through others. Then discuss how you can help others see again.
Never underestimate the gift you and your family have to make truth known, loved and served. Abundant blessings to you and yours.
