  26th Sunday O.T.  – 2018

  “Whoever causes one (…) to sin”

  Every our decision and action is connected to its consequences. Are they (our actions) good or not so good? Are we encourage others to do some good or are we causing others to sin? 

Each one of us is responsible for this what happens in our surrounding. Surely, the scale will be different, yet, we are responsible equally. Even though, it may seem that our deeds do not do much harm to us or others. 

 

Let’s take an example. Someone takes a stone and breaks a glass in our window. It is a harm, a wrongdoing. Another takes a nail or something sharp and makes a scratch, such little one. And this is repeated everyday. Will this glass break at a certain time? Yes, it will. In both cases the effect will be the same: the glass will break. 

 

Every wrong doing is a sin because it deprives someone – myself or other-self – of some good. It is wrong because it deprives me, us, others of God’s love. Being called by God to life, we are called to be images of Him – Who Love is – in this world. 

 

Doing good deeds, even such little ones as giving a cup of water, we will have a reward. Showing to others God’s love residing in us, we will encourage others to do good, to live a good life, to love others. Whenever we do not do any good, but doing something wrong, we might be causing others to sin. 

 

We, people, like to follow others. Let us be leaders to others, so that they may follow us to the Source of all goodness and love, to God.
