Sometimes we get in the way. We get in the way of others. We get in the way of God.
In today’s Gospel we find these lines: “Children were brought to Jesus that He might lay His hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ After He placed His hands on them, He went away.”
Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying,
“Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?”
The trap these Pharisees set for Jesus is to force him into choosing sides in this difficult question about divorce. Should divorce be easy? "For any cause whatever?" Because I prefer blondes now? Because we just got bored with each other? Because I have met someone I have fallen in love with? Because Moses allowed us to divorce?
You know the time has come (Rom 13:11)
