We don’t fight with the fierce fear of Pharaoh. We fight, instead, with righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. That is the good fight of faith. But, you know what, that’s really hard to do.
Saint Augustine himself said of this parable, and I quote, “I can’t believe this story came from the lips of our Lord.”
So, together let us seek what has been lost. Let us search for what seems so lost nowadays: compassion, gentleness, justice, and basic human decency. Let us do the work of discipleship by celebrating together, with radical abundance, when what has been lost has been found.
