Thursday of Trinity 22 – Matthew 25:1-13

ShareMatthew 25:1-13             One of my favorite shows growing up was Batman.  My favorite archvillain was King Tut (Julie Newmar’s Catwoman was a close 2nd).  I think Victor Buono was a comic genius!  Anyway, King Tut was in real life a mild-mannered Harvard professor of Egyptology, but when he got hit on the head, for […]

Wednesday of Trinity 22 – Matthew 24:42-51

Saturday of Trinity 21 – Matthew 24:1-14

ShareMatthew 24:1-14 Sometimes, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.  In this case, I feel compelled to say a word about Matthew 24 and its relationship to eschatology.  In a word, I believe that in Matthew 24, Jesus is speaking not about the end of the world before His Second Coming […]

Friday of Trinity 21 – Matthew 23:24-39

ShareMatthew 23:24-39             Sometimes when I read the lesson for the day I feel like I’m in a biblical supermarket.  The Lord offers me so many choices for what to talk about.  Other times, it seems as if there’s only one thing to meditate on and for some reason it doesn’t compel my heart.  I […]
