Matthew 6:19-23

Cynicism is a choice we make, an extremely poor choice. We sometimes refuse to see the possibilities for change; we write off those we consider beyond help; we accept injustice and intolerance as the way things are. But Jesus calls us to realize that reconciliation is always possible, that God’s grace enables us to transform every Good Friday into Easter Sunday, that the light of God’s compassion can illuminate every dark night of fear and ignorance.
