Tuesday, third week of Lent

March 22, 2017

JMJ

Blessed Tuesday!

Readings:
Daniel 3:25, 34-43 (Azariah’s prayer for mercy in the fiery furnace)
Psalm 25: 4-9 “Remember Your mercies, Lord”
+Matthew 18:21-35 (forgive seventy times seven times)

I don’t expect
God’s favor
because I’m so good.

I’m not.

He is.

Now others
can expect
to get
from me
the fruits of mercy
He bestows.

Is my moral “center of gravity” in my own goodness or in God’s kindness?
What kind of steward am I of the mercy I receive?
