In this reading for today Jesus is teaching in the synagogue. Many disbelieved what he was preaching: “you should repent, if you have sinned!”
I think that Jesus is saying that people need to have faith, that people should believe in him. And that people should repent of their sins. We should also trust that people will have faith in us, even if some people don’t believe in us.
Dear God, give me the courage and faith to believe that what people are teaching me will be important to me, and that I will be able to turn my life around if I have sinned. Amen.
