When Sin Abounds

The Apostle Paul once said, "When sin abounds, grace abounds all the more." Romans 5:20 The long and short of it is that when we are consumed with personal sins, lusts and desires - guess what? Grace can abound all the more when we aggressively go after what we can change in our lives. We can be more merciful to others. We can stop judging. We can go to daily Mass and monthly confession. Although we cannot fix our selfishness and habits of sin, we can abound in grace by being a merciful, loving, patient and kind person. "Love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8

Let us pray ...

Heavenly Father, teach us this day to be loving, kind, patient, understanding and forgiving. To recognize your presence in all men and women, especially in the rejected, the poor, the despised and in those who mourn. May we never be guilty of judging another person, lest we be judged by the measure with which we judge. We ask this through Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you, one God forever and ever. Amen.
