Our second reading for the first Sunday in Lent (February 21, 2010) is a profound theology for Christianity. Especially Romans 10:12, “For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and generous to all who call on him.”
What does it mean to be generous?
Is it somehow different to be generous to all?
Does it mean that God does not play favorites?
And does that reassure you?
…Or convict you?
One thing to remember in these 40 days of Lent is that Sundays are not a part of the Lenten season. No somber time can outweigh the day we celebrate the resurrection. God is indeed generous to all.
Gracious Lord, may your continual generosity hasten our repentance. Amen.
