Thoughts on God: March 29, 2019
A Prayer for Reflection
O Lord, you bid us stay alert and active in the work of your kingdom. Keep us focused on things which matter, awaiting your return with eagerness and longing. Through Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
"Keep awake, therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour." (Matt. 25:13).
Questions for Reflection
Do people live as if Jesus might return any day? How might your community look different if people behaved as if Jesus was on his way?
What is one thing you can change about your routine or behaviors so that you are behaving as if Jesus was going to return any moment?

Is waiting easy or hard? Why?
Something To DO with This Passage
Make a bucket list of 5-10 things you'd like to do before Jesus' return. Challenge yourself to plan and do one of the things on your list. Consider how the items on your list benefit others, and how they might change you for the better.
May God grant you patience in all of your waiting this week. Amen.
