Each day, I reflect upon a word or phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
He is not God of the dead but of the living. (Mark 12:18-27)
LIVING: Are you living three pages ahead on your calendar? So caught up in what the future will bring or what needs to be done for tomorrow that you miss the beauty of today?
People of faith get caught in this trap at times. Most certainly our goal is to have eternal life with God in heaven, but I hope we’re not thinking, “I can’t wait to die so I can go there!”
Our life on this earth will end soon enough, but God gave us life, our time on earth now. It is a gift. We love God by cherishing the gift He has given us. We glorify God by putting this gift to work, spreading the Gospel message…by LIVING.
