Commentary on the Gospel of
Gift of Wonder
So many miracles happened in Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum; but the hearts of their citizens remained cold and unresponsive. They failed to respond precisely because they had lost the sense of wonder and marvel; they had lost the freshness of sight. Take a second look at the questions Yahweh raised before Job. Have we ever contemplated those marvels? If we pause to “really see” those marvels unfolding around us on a daily basis, we will, like Job, place our hands on our mouth in wonder and go down on our knees in worship and adoration of the Creator. We will then respond to these marvels by sitting in ashes and wearing sackcloth of repentance for failing to recognize Grace that has always surrounded us; and we will align ourselves with the designs of the Creator.
