God sends many people into our lives. And, in one way or another, they’re meant to help us. That’s why God sends them to us.
Now, in Scripture, we hear about Moses and the prophets. They were all sent by God to help the people become better. And then, finally, God sent his Son Jesus to say to the people, “Come this way! Follow me!”
Now, in our life today, God still sends people into our lives because he wants us to have as much help as we can have. And so, we have: our parents and grandparents; we have teachers and coaches; God gives us friends and neighbors; he gives us priests and deacons, monks and nuns, bishops and popes.
God sends many people into our lives. And, in one way or another, they’re meant to help us. That’s why God sends them to us. Most importantly, though, he still sends his Son Jesus to us. By the Holy Spirit and the Eucharist, Jesus is still here, right here with each of us. And he’s here because he wants to help us.
The trick is to let him help us . . . because Jesus is the best brother, the best coach, the best friend we have. It’s good to let Jesus help us.
