Now someone approached him and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?” He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good? There is only One who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
Jesus’ response simply states that we must be faithful to the way of good—the commandments. By living our lives in accordance with the commandments, we put all aspects of our life in right relationship with God and other people.
(Speak to God, using these words or words of your own.)
God of all good, you have given me the gift of life through your own Son. Grant me a faithful heart that I might grow more attuned to your will in my life.
