There is only one Rule by which to live and that is to live for others.
If God wants to tell the world of a generous love and forgiveness that is free for everyone why does Jesus tell Peter he should talk about him?
Faith is slippery.
We can be tempted to think our faith is small and not easily see God’s hand in our life.
We can also fall into the hubris of thinking our faith is ‘great’ and better than that of others.
Our faith grows by becoming deeper not bigger.
The Call to walk in the footsteps of Christ is not a sinecure. It will bring us joy but it will also be costly and we will be tempted to give up on it. When that happens listen to the Music of the Call.
Our Beloved like the wise steward cherishes and treasures all sorts of people regardless of how they value themselves.
