Psalm 81
Genesis 24:1-27
2 John 1-13

by Brother David Vryhof, Guest Commentator on the Gospel of John

Chosen

In the life that we know in the world, if some belong, then it follows that others do not belong. If some are chosen, others are left. But God’s love extends to each and every person, to every living thing. We belong to God, not because of anything we have done or merited on our own, but because God has chosen us.

– Br. David Vryhof, Society of Saint John the Evangelist
