Pondering for Tuesday, January 10, 2023

Daily Office Readings for Tuesday of Week 1 of Epiphany: Year 1

Morning, Psalm 5and 6; Evening, Psalm 10 and 11:
Isaiah 40:25-31Ephesians 1:15-23Mark 1:14-28:

“And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for people:” (Mark 1:17)

Jesus invites the first of two brothers to move their search for fish to a search for people.  I have found that most of our community vocations can be modified in a way that will be useful in our church. Accountants, carpenters, cooks, janitors, doctors and lawyers all have skills that will enhance our houses of worship.  We just need to hear the invitation of our Lord Jesus to “follow Him.”

What gifts or talents do you have that your church needs? Where your skills and the community needs meet, there is our Lord Jesus asking you to follow Him.

Please keep up your thoughts and prayers and hopes for Ukraine, Iran and China.

As we listen to what the Spirit is saying to us, let us live to love and serve, and to teach others to love and serve, while pondering anew what the Almighty can do. John
