Thought of the Day September 27, 2023 Living in the truth

By 10:00 AM


"The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For as he he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it. Humility is nothing but truth and pride is nothing but lying." St. Vincent de Paul

Adam and Eve failed to live in the truth of their relationship with God. Their pride opened the door for their lost. On the other hand, Jesus and Mary lived in the truth of who they were, no matter the temptations the Evil One placed before them. Jesus knew he was the Son of God and in his humanity was depended on the Father. Mary knew she was a handmaid of the Lord. They accepted and lived in the truth of their relationship with the Father. We are tempted. But God gives us the grace to live in the truth of our relationship with him as his adopted sons and daughters. We are dependent upon him for everything. Without him we can do nothing. Living in that truth will be the strength we will need to  overcome the various temptations that come our way.
