Friday of Trinity 3 – Luke 7:36-50

ShareLuke 7:36-50 I wonder sometimes if we really understand or remember how great the forgiveness of God is in our lives.  If we’re Christians, then surely we’re aware of how great God is and how grave and serious even a single sin against the Almighty and Holy One is.  Surely we’re aware of the many […]

Wednesday of 4th Sunday in Lent – 1 Corinthians 14:1-12

Share1 Corinthians 14:1-12 In St. Paul’s fascinating discussion of the gifts of tongues and prophecies we sometimes miss the main point of his words.  He wasn’t producing a manual on these gifts or defining exactly what they were (I wish he had!)  His main point, not surprisingly, is that use the spiritual gifts we have […]

Monday of Trinity 23 – Matthew 26:1-16

ShareMatthew 26:1-16 In Matthew, we have been climbing God’s holy hill.  The going has been rough lately, actually ever since Peter made his profession and Jesus began to teach about His coming death.  But Jesus’ words on the coming destruction of the Old Covenant and Temple have been even a little tougher to get through.  […]
