In today’s readings the theme is centered around trust. The prophet Isaiah says, “A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace; in peace, for its trust in you.” I have grown an immense amount in my trust this year, especially in my relationship with God. Through prayer asking God to help me everyday to put my faith and trust in his plan for me.
In the Gospel the theme of trust connects directly within the passage. Jesus says, “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.” Putting trust in God is hard because moving rocks is not easy, but when you allow God to establish himself in you, the reward will be eternal life.
