When we look at the reality of our life and existence, we are faced with layers and layers of challenges both from within and outside. It begins with our own personal battles at home within the family circles. We also face many hardships and problems in the larger society, the Church, State, nation and beyond. Our faith is continually shaken by various forces which make it very difficult for us to make a stand in certain situations, hesitant and indecisive about what to do and how to face the situation and so on in our lives.
But then, if we are true to our commitment, our conscience would lead us to which direction we would take our stance. History brings to us many exemplary lives, of many who lived lives true to their faith in various circumstances and who carried along unwaveringly till the end of their lives. Many examples can be seen in Scripture. The Bible speaks about such personalities who carried out a selfless life with God. Jesus’ teaching is all about how to live a selfless life.
