Yesterday, three strangers came to meet with Abraham and told them some good – and seemingly impossible – news. Both Abraham and Sarah laugh at the absurdity of God’s plan, but His plans cannot be thwarted no matter how far-fetched and unlikely they seem. We can be sure God’s plans include executing judgment on the wicked, but He is merciful not wanting anyone to perish. Some listeners may find today’s reading disturbing – and rightfully so. Use your best judgment when allowing children to listen.
