Commentary on the Gospel of
WE CONCEIVED, WE HAD LABOR PAINS, BUT WE GAVE BIRTH TO THE WIND
Isaiah poignantly writes, “We conceived… but we gave birth to the wind. We have not brought salvation to the land.” Despite the brilliance of the human mind, he humbly recognizes our incapacities. We invent new technologies, but we also develop more efficient ways to kill one another. We craft laws anchored on moral righteousness, but we allow uncivility and barbarism to exterminate the weak. We forge international treatises, but we collectively destroy mother earth.
We are foolish to think that the modern world has no need for God. More and more we need God to save us from ourselves.
