Reflection for the Week–February 17

God, through the created world and the potential for a relationship with others, graciously offers us a space to be and to do. This striking atmosphere of the given is loaded with responsibility and freedom. God wants us to engage with both. This means that we are called to be attentive to God and to interact with the created. The former is all together fitting, since God is God, but the latter should not be viewed as irrelevant or as a betrayal of God, who encourages us to be and do in the dimension of what has been made.
