Think About It!

Going Against The Flow!

by Fr. Jack McArdle with Aneel Aranha

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2)

An elderly man, whose memory was beginning to lapse, decided to take the car, and travel to a new shopping centre on the other side of town. His daughter tried to dissuade him, but to no avail. She insisted, however, that he take her mobile phone, just in case he had problems. An hour or two later, she was listening to the traffic report on the radio. It told about a bus broken down on the Artane road, and traffic lights that had failed in Inchicore. The reporter went on to speak about word that had just come about a car travelling in the wrong direction, against the flow of traffic, on the M50. "Oh, my God, I hope dad is alright." She rang him, and warned him about the car travelling the wrong way, as he would have to travel on that motorway. "Tell me about it," he replied, "there are hundreds of them coming the wrong way!"

Living in the Kingdom of God often involves going against the flow of traffic. You will meet people actually moving away from the very thing you are looking for…………
