God Is God And I Am Not

Run Time: 13:08. Gospel: Lk 17:5-10.

Children have a way of reminding parents that as much as we depend upon these things and try to attend to them, you don’t get to set the schedule. Things do not always go as planned and even the best application of parental wisdom is subject to the veto of a … well timed melt down. To some degree, we are reminded in the exercise of parenthood that even this is less dominion and more stewardship. That there is another Who calls the shots. And it’s as I say a good lesson in detachment which is a necessary condition of faith. To put it another way – that God is God and I am not. And I work and I apply my efforts and I use the gifts and the talents that God has placed at my disposal – but He is still God and I am not.
