Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A) • Do we really know the difference between good and bad? Solomon is honest enough to admit he needs God’s help to discern. Anything that brings us closer to God is good; anything that takes us farther from God is bad. Nothing that happens to you can, by itself, separate you from the love of God. So what are you worried about?

Point to Ponder: What in fact does separate us from the love of God?
Point to Discuss: Are you dreaming about things that aren’t actually good for you? Are you afraid of things that aren’t actually bad for you? Ask a friend to tell you about a time a tragedy turned into a blessing.
Or read about lottery winners if you don’t have any friends you can talk to about these kinds of things.
