“To Test Him”
O God, your Book tells us that your Son Jesus has the words of life; we can, therefore, come to him for the help we need as we live these lives of ours.
Help us when we come to him to have minds and hearts that are open to his truth rather than minds and hearts that are looking for ways around his truth.
Give us the grace to seek guidance for the ways he would have us live rather than justification for the ways we want to live.
“Some Pharisees came to him, and to test him they asked, ‘Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause?’” (Matthew 19:3)
