Homily from the Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
The future is one thing we do not need to know to be wise.
If we knew the future, very few of us would make foolish decisions. But very few of us make decisions in the first place. Many people prefer to be carried along by other peoples’ decisions and by the circumstances of life. But wise people make decisions. And they make these wise decisions without knowing the future. Instead, they look at their past, their present, and where they would like to end up. And then they choose. This choice does not have to be a leap…sometimes it is just a step.
