Circumstances change from time to time. In fact, our situation and circumstances seem to change all the time. Some changes are big, some more modest. Your toothpaste, your address, your insurance company, your hairstyle, your last name, your favorite tv show, your surprising job assignment, your child’s least favorite school subject, your newest passion, your latest disappointment. The list goes on and on because life goes on and on.

Earlier, in the verses from Sunday’s epistle, St. Paul gives us some advice on how to live:
“… put off falsehood and speak truthfully … Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice … Be kind and compassionate, forgiving each other…Be imitators of God, … and live a life of love …”
Does it matter? Does it really make a difference how we live?
And if so, to what does it matter? I mean, what’s at stake?
And what about when we miss the mark? What then?
