Wisdom not rules!

3 Sep

Religious people, perhaps even more than others, seem to have rules about what you should and should not do. Some also have rituals and set prayers.   All these can help our frail humanity, can give us guidance. But they may ignore the mystery of living. For what it is to be fully human is not quite known to us; what we should do – how behave – is not fully known. Set practices and formulae at best can make us feel comfortable or proud. We need God in the form of Wisdom; and we have God but we must be attentive to what Wisdom wants of each of us; be attentive and do it!

I like this poetic rendering of the passage in the Book of Wisdom (9:13-18) – do you?
