As we move closer through Lent to the crucifixion Christ calls us deeper in to self-examination. Through the cautionary tale of the rich man and Lazarus we again see that God is not concerned with riches, finery, social status, or other earthly material things. No, God is concerned with the heart, with that which is eternal in nature. The story further cautions us that people of this, and each, age will not heed Gods calling and commandments and imperil themselves. In this time of reflection we pray for God's continued mercy, grace, and assistance in leading us to further repentance, and conversion. Posted to

    I shudder, when I think how many of us fall into the category of the rich man and not that of Lazarus. We need to heed God's calling and keep our commandments, bring Jesus into the centre of our lives and detach from the material things that tempt us into a more comfortable and better life. So difficult to do, and we so very much need God's grace for our conversion.
