Morning: Psalm 69:1-38; Genesis 43:1-15; I Corinthians 7:1-9
violent storm, for which Galilee is famous, represents chaos and evil,
which so easily strike our hearts with fear. Yet, in the unfolding of
Creation itself, order emerges from chaos. Jesus himself possesses a
creative and constructive power for good. Of course, we may point to
instances in which evil seems to defeat goodness – Jesus on a Cross, for
instance. But today we still look to Jesus and wonder (as he does with
his disciples after calming a storm on Galilee): Why are you afraid?
What prevents you from trusting a goodness that evil cannot defeat?
