Choices

We are defined by the choices we make in life. When it comes to choosing whom we serve, we cannot serve two masters. Yesterday's readings of the gospel were about how if you put new wine in old wine skins, it causes them to burst and both the skins and wine are lost. The priest interpreted it very well in his homily when he said, in our country (Uganda), he has experienced that we tend to practice syncretism. That is, we combine our traditional African beliefs with Christianity and the result is a mess!

We have to choose, you cannot have your cake and eat it too! Either you will serve God or you will serve evil! You are only fooling yourself if you think you can pick out the things you like about both faiths and mash them together.


Even in other aspects of life, you will have to choose between doing the right thing and doing what you think will please others or yourself. May God grant you the wisdom to always do what is right and the grace to persevere even when doing right creates opposition and trials for you! Amen.
