Expectations

Daily reading:  Luke 7:18-35
Sunday February 12, 2017

Focus passage:  John’s disciples informed him about all these things.  John called two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord.  They were to ask him, “Are you the one who is coming, or should we look for someone else?”  Luke 7:18-19

Today’s passage is an honest look at how our life of faithfulness calls us to constantly be seeking ways to interpret how God is active in our world.   It calls us to look at how we balance our expectations with our relationship with God, with one another and with our larger community.   It also calls us to see the real struggle in what we have to let go of in order to follow Christ.


Prayer:  God, who invites us to wrestle through the night, be with us as we struggle to match our expectations with yours and know that in these moments of unrest you are working on us, transforming us into Kingdom dwellers.  Help us to be agents of justice, love and compassion in our communities.  Amen.
