St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 12

"You have taken away the key of knowledge." (Luke 11: 52)

Jesus was criticising the religious lawyers of his day because instead of bringing people closer to God, they put obstacles in the way. He criticises them for laying a heavy legal burden on people. God's love is available to all and we are to be concerned with justice rather than keeping the rules at all costs.

Lord, help us not to put barriers in the way of those who seek you, and to reveal your generous love made available to all in Jesus Christ. Amen.
