Peter Russell
Pentecost 17 – Words of Wisdom?! – We all make mistakes when we speak without thinking, and what we say can be remembered for a long time and play havoc with the lives of others. The same goes for what we post on Facebook or tweet on Twitter. Who do we honour in our lives by our words, actions and inactions? What wisdom do we bring to bear? Despite electronic social networking, it is essential for us to have live interaction with friends and loved ones. If we seek just the wisdom of the world for attaining our own happiness and fulfilment, our life, in the end, will be hollow and empty; but if we go against worldly wisdom, forgetting our own selfish desires and seeking good and justice for others as we would wish for ourselves, we will find ourselves living and enjoying life to the full.
James 3: 1-12; Mark 8: 27-38; Proverbs 1: 20-33
