I often lack boldness in my faith.
Whether it is because I am uncomfortable sharing my opinion in matters relating to my faith; or just that I do not want to “make waves,” I often choose to be silent.
This was the case with the chief priests and elders in today’s Gospel. Jesus challenged them in front of the people gathered in the temple area when they asked by what authority he was teaching. They were afraid to answer his question with boldness and chose to remain in their comfort zone.
Lord, teach us to be bold in our faith. Help us to rise to these occasions with confidence in you and the willingness to break out of our comfort. You alone know how many lives may be impacted by our listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and speaking in the boldness of Christ.
