Theme: God’s choice
Thomas Aquinas once remarked, ‘beware of person of one point of view!’ Narrowness, intolerance or living life this way is as much an injustice to the person so trapped as it is against others. To live in such an insular atmosphere wherein reality is interpreted narrowly is to willingly forfeit the richness which plurality and diversity affords to the human experience. To hold suspect and unorthodox that which is different simply because it is different is to choose to live a diminished existence. Today we are invited to shake ourselves free of ‘one view mentality’ by becoming appreciative of the Spirit of God which is at work in others even in those we least expect.
