Battle Ready: Birds of Pray | #917

Fr. Joel Homilies

Lent, 2nd Sunday (C) It’s the second week of Lent – have you been falling asleep on your Lenten resolutions? Peter, James, and John were falling asleep when they were supposed to be praying. Abraham, on the other hand, chased away the birds of prey and resisted the temptation to run from God. He fights for the Covenant and God blesses him abundantly.

We need to fight for the things that matter: family time, couple time, God time. If you fight the little battles of couple time and prayer time, you’ll be ready for the big battles. If you let the little things slide, you won’t be prepared for Gethsemane. Want to win the battle? Chase away the vultures. (17 Mar 2019)

Going Deeper: Schedule couple time with your spouse, if you’re married — or quality time with God, or both.
