In today’s second reading Paul is teaching us that we need to focus on God no matter what we decide to do with our lives.
As we go about our week, may God’s Word find a home in our minds and hearts.
May we always listen for God’s voice and follow Jesus’ teaching given to us with love and authority.

Now you take the large one and leave me the smaller.
You don’t love me anymore...”
“Nonsense, darling,” replied the husband, “you just cook better now.”
