Prepare the Way

Morning: Psalm 25; Exodus 18:13-27; I Peter 5:1-14

A thousand years before Jesus, the people of Israel hoped God would come and establish his chosen people as a new Kingdom on earth.  They crossed the Jordan into their promised land.  Now John calls them back to the Jordan, to prepare the way for a new land of promise; they flock to him.  Isn’t it true that the old longing for something better, brighter, lasting and good still persists in the human soul?  And now we too are called: ‘Let go of false hope and turn again towards that better world … prepare the Way for it!’
