Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
While Fr. Gary is on vacation, we share with you the meditation for today from Forward Day by Day.
Matthew 7:25 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock.
I recently relocated overseas to a new culture, a new city, a new continent. I have the opportunity to build a completely new network of friends and colleagues. In many ways, I can be who I want, because no one knows who I was!
Yet, in the tumult of the unfamiliar and the unknown, I feel little control over so many aspects of my life. At the mercy of shifting sands, I find myself seeking bedrock to ground me. Each day poses the question, "What kind of foundation am I building today that enables me to follow ever more faithfully in the way of Jesus?" Indeed, this question might be asked by any disciple seeking to build a life upon the bedrock values of God's kingdom. Maybe this transitional time merely makes me more aware that the choices I make at this crossroads prepare the foundation for the new temple being built.
See Ya Sunday!
