Jesus calls us to keep our eyes, ears and hearts open to all.
Reflection of the Week - 17 November 2020

Faithful risking is scary. In Matthew 25:14-30 one servant didn’t know their Master very well because they hid their one talent rather than risk losing it. The Master had taken many risks to increase his fortune and certainly risked losing eight coins by trusting these servants to increase their income. Perhaps if the one talent slave had risked losing the meagre amount he was given, he might have seen a different side of the Master who could celebrate the action rather than the result. God risks so much for humanity … do we risk showing God’s love to the world? Do we risk speaking words of compassion, challenge and faith – or do we hide ourselves away from scrutiny?

It is easy enough to take in good stuff; we come to church, we read our Bibles, we pray, we listen to fabulous sermons and even play Christian music … somehow over the hours that follow, the good stuff then gets changed as it passes through us.
The world is not simply there. Everything and everyone we see, we view through the lenses of our thoughts.
