When it comes to the big ticket stuff, stuff like the 10 Commandments, most of us know what to do. Not to brag, but I think we do decent job with the whole “thou shalt not kill” thing.
The thing is, God’s plan for our lives doesn’t stop with the big ticket stuff. God’s plan for our lives includes less visible stuff as well.
But less visible doesn’t mean less important.
Those less visible, less obvious things include the things that God has uniquely equipped each one of us with. The abilities, the hidden strengths, the more than enough that God has given to each one of us.
All that we have been given, so that we can do what God has called us to do.
So what does any of that have to do with today’s Gospel, which is all about the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is how we know. How we know what to do with the more than enough that God has given to us.
God’s Holy Spirit, dwelling in our hearts, is there. Not just to point us in the right direction.
But to give us the grace, the strength that we need to do what God has called us to do with the more than enough that He has given to us.
Which is why, whenever we get too worried about how we’re going to do something, we need to stop. And remember that we’re not doing it alone.
Because God’s idea of more than enough isn’t just giving us everything we need for what He has called us to do.
God’s idea of more than enough is doing it with us. Every step of the way.Read More
