THE OBVIOUS

The world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his faithful companion, Dr. Watson, were on a camping trip. They were in their sleeping bags looking up at the sky. Holmes said, “Watson, look up. What do you see?” Watson answered, “Well, I see thousands of stars.” “And what does that mean to you?” Holmes inquired. “Well,” said Watson, “I guess it means we will have another nice day tomorrow.” Watson paused for a moment and then asked, “What does it mean to you, Holmes?” “To me,” said Holmes somberly, “it means someone has stolen our tent.” No wonder Holmes was called the world’s greatest detective.

There are some things in life that ought to be obvious. In fact, they are obvious – but sometimes we forget. One of the things we forget is what’s really important in life. What is really important in life? Hear the words of Jesus, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these” (Mk. 12:30-31).
