First Sunday of Lent
Do you ever read this particular passage from Genesis and hope that maybe this time it will have a different ending? Maybe this time Adam and Eve won’t succumb to the serpent’s lies….? Paul, in our second reading reminds us that it was through man that sin entered the world. We would love to blame the serpent, but all he did was tempt. The true evil was in the choice Eve, and then Adam, ultimately made. Thankfully, through Jesus, that death was destroyed, and we were given a different set of choices. As we enter this season of Lent, reach out to Jesus and one another, realizing stewardship is more than money or taking care of creation. Stewardship is about free will, and the choices we steward. Lent is a wonderful time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. A time to steward our choices.
