Janice Kreider focused on the question “What should we do?” This was the question asked of John the Baptist in response to his calls for repentance. Politics, economics and religion were not working for the people. John told them that relying on their past and claiming Abraham as father was inadequate; his reply was similar to what Jesus taught later. (Jesus was a disciple of John) John demanded action: if you have two coats give one away, tax collectors are to collect no more than the amount prescribed, no extortion. Jesus enjoyed dinner invitations at the homes of some of these tax collectors where he told stories of joy. The good news is marked by joy – the joy of being part of a country where there are no poor. (HN) Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God. (Leon Bloy)
