"who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 1:4)
When I say "faithful" what do you think of? To what, or to whom are you "faithful"? Is there something you do, or somewhere you go, "faithfully"? For instance I know some sports fans who do not miss a game of - pick your sport - no matter what time, where or the weather even if it means listening "on line" in the middle of the night.
The readings, today, are about being faithful to God. In Exodus Moses has taken 'to long' on the mountain and the people have made an "idol" (32:4) and God is angry. (v. 10) Moses is reminding God of God's promises and God "relents." (v. 14) In 1 Timothy Paul is writing to encourage Timothy to encourage prayers so "we may live peaceful lives." (v. 2:2) Paul reminds Timothy "this is good and pleases God our Savior." (v. 3) In the Gospel reading Jesus is telling another parable - this one is about a manager. Jesus is pointing out "whoever can be trusted with a little can also be trusted with much." (16:10) The point Jesus is making is we can't really be serving two masters. (v. 13) So.... Are we being faithful to the world, and making money, and making more money? Or are we faithful to God? Going, doing, living our faithfulness to God?
As Caregivers we are already caring for our "person(s)," following and doing what God is asking us to do but are we "living" our faith? When others see us do they see our love of, and for, God? God's LOVE filling us to "overflowing"? Are we being faithful to the "world" and "money" or are we being faithful to God?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
