January 04 2016 God’s Sacred Family Bond with Us

We are familiar with contracts.  Two people promise to exchange material goods or services in an agreed manner.  A covenant is very different however.  Material is not exchanged, but persons are!  Covenants are different from contracts in that they are intended to form a family bond, and a bond that is sacred.  Think of it like marriage.  Two individuals beforehand become a family afterwards!  Why does this matter?  Because it is through God’s covenants with us, beginning with Adam and Eve, that he calls us to share in his divinity.  This is a family we WANT to be part of!!
