Rereading The Hobbit and Reflecting on the Journeyi
Isn't that a lot like life? We face evil and continuously have to fight it. The temptations to do wrong, the petty meanness so easy to fall into, the temptations to discouragement. "Just give up; it's too hard and who cares anyway?" That's when we need to look up and see the light and remember we are never alone and help is always close at hand.
What is your journey like today? Whatever it is, don't walk alone. Be aware of the spiritual twin walking with you, your guardian angel, who is so eager to help you. Look for ways that you can be a comfort to those around you. Somehow, in encouraging others, our own journey becomes easier. Have a blessed day. You are the hero on the most important journey of all -- life in Christ. Let us pray to be transformed so we can be a guide to others on the journey.
