Our loving and good God created us with common sense so that we can address the many challenges of life. However, because we are limited human beings, we still have to seek His wisdom and guidance in order to arrive at the proper solutions.
We see these truths in today’s gospel (Lk. 19:1-10). Zacchaeus knew he was short in both stature and honesty. So he used common sense to climb a tree to see the Lord. This led to an encounter with Jesus that effected salvation. Let us do the same.
Lord Jesus, You give us all the good things we need in life. You also invite us to listen to the guidance You give, so that we can make the right decisions as You desire. Amen.
