Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

He promised peace

He spoke words of faith.

The people adored him.

But he was wrong. He did not speak the word of the Lord truthfully.

In today’s first reading (Jeremiah 28:1-17) the prophet Jeremiah confronts another person who speaks and acts like a prophet.

Jeremiah wishes that what the other person spoke would prove true, but Jeremiah is cautious in his discernment and before long he knows the truth of the matter: truth and warnings he must pronounce.

May you and I always seek the gift of discernment and always proclaim the truth in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
