What Will He Find?

October 20, 2019 – Twenty-Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time

But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:8)

This final line from today’s Gospel just hangs in the air. Food for thought, don’t you think?

I’m not sure I can answer on behalf of the entire earth, but then again, I don’t think that’s really what Jesus was asking.

I believe the question is intended for each of us as individuals – when the Son of Man comes, how will he find your faith? Will He find a faith that is grounded in love of God and others? Will He find a faith expressed in words only, but lacking action? Will He find a faith nourished by prayer and Scripture?

When the Son of Man comes, He will examine your heart. What will He find?
