Spiritual Longing

Luke 1:53
The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.

Those who are hungry or empty many times turn to God for help. They have no other options. They are open to God’s loving care. Those who are rich or filled often believe they are just fine and need no help. Their heart is in their possessions. They may be completely unaware of their true need of God. Spiritually…the poor can be rich while the rich can be poor. It’s not just possessions that we sometimes cling to…but power and prestige as well. What are your attachments? May we be willing to let go of our attachments so that we may be open to a deeper connection with God.
