Psalm(s): 40 , 54
Old Testament: Isaiah 10:5-19
New Testament: 2 Peter 2:17-22

So tired……must…..reflect…..on……..readings lol 😛

Today was definitely one of those days that I did MP while only half-awake and without coffee at my disposal :(……So needless to say the brain is not firing on all cylinders quite yet. As a result, today’s reflection is going to be short and sweet. One thing caught my eye from Peter’s epistle:

……for people are slaves to whatever masters them…. (2 Peter 2:19)

In its original context, Peter is still talking about being a slave to lust. This sentence however is much more profound and has other connections to the Christian tradition.

Matthew’s gospel tells us that it is impossible to serve two masters at the same time (Matt 6:24) and in Luke Jesus says that “wherever your heart is, there also is your treasure” (Luke 12:34)

The call to Christian life is about service…..we are not called to be masters, but slaves for Christ just as Paul was.

What serves as master in your life??? Does it control your actions and outlook on life???? Do we need to re-evaluate what takes precedence in our lives? I wonder….. +
