sermon on the mount --the better way

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one

When one is younger, one struggles with avoiding bad things which are enticing. When one is older, the struggle is avoiding what is good.

At age 59 I have a tendency to withdraw, or to merely do what I've always been doing.

Our Lord has better things for us than do our desires. And it is not merely our flesh, but it is Satan that would have us do less than what we ought.

May we ask our Lord each day for strength to pursue the better way.
