Awesome. Every time.

So you’ve got your place.  You get coffee there all the time.  Because they know how to do it.  Just like you like it. 

And they’re consistent.  It’s going to be awesome.  Every time.  You know what to expect. 

But there’s a hidden danger in awesome every time.  It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, and become unable to appreciate anything that isn’t a clone of your usual.  With no ability (or desire) to enjoy the unexpected. 

Without realizing it, you can close yourself off to a lot of great things in life.  Including God. 

Since one of the ways that God reaches out to us is through the unexpected.  Like in Sunday’s first reading (Exodus). 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
