Thursday of Trinity 14 – Matthew 5:38-48

ShareMatthew 5:38-48 I told you some time ago that love is the strongest thing known to man.  This only makes sense when you remember that we were wrought in love and formed from the substance of God’s love.  How could we not be made for love? However, I find that there are a lot of […]

Monday of Trinity 10 – Romans 4:13-25

Share I love history!  I love history because it is His Story, the story of God’s dealing with us.  But I also love history – and you should to. And don’t tell me about how much you don’t like or didn’t like history in school.  You think you had a bad history teacher?  You should […]

January 7 – Acts 11:1-18

ShareActs 11:1-18 “What God has cleansed you must not call common” (verse 9). That is the message this morning. St. Peter had a hard time accepting that when God called all foods clean, he, Peter, had better stop calling some of them unclean (or “common” or “profane”). The Jews had a hard time accepting that […]

Friday of the 8th Sunday in Trinity – Luke 17:1-10

ShareLuke 17:1-10 Decisions, decisions.  God is drawing my attention to both verses 1-4 and verses 5-10.  Let’s meditate on verses 1-4. “Take heed to yourselves.”  Take care of yourselves, watch out for yourselves, Jesus says.  Why in the world would He say this?  What danger is it that lurks in our lives? The danger is, […]

Monday of 5th Sunday after Easter – Matthew 6:5-15

ShareMatthew 6:5-15 I love antiques and artifacts.  I love going to museums and experiencing their artifacts.  I feel tangibly closer to dinosaurs or mummies, to van Gogh or Van Eyck, when in a museum.  I love old books and how they smell and their sturdy yellow pages and the fact that they connect me with […]

Thursday of Trinity 21 – Matthew 23:13-23

ShareMatthew 23:13-23 It would be easy to hammer the scribes and Pharisees again today.  Really, they’ve made themselves such easy targets!  And Jesus Himself spends one of the longest red-letter passages in the Bible wailing on them.  So I’d have a good precedent and could claim to be following Jesus. But, you see, it’s too […]
