Revd Sara's Reflections for w/c 17th March 2024

Mark 13:32-3732 ‘But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. 34 It’s like a man going away: he leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.35 ‘Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the cock crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: “Watch!”’




Watch! As humans, it’s easy for us to speculate when this time Jesus speaks of will come. In fact, with today’s news it would be easy to think that every week is the last! Jesus says, “It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.” (v.34). This prompts us to think about ourselves: Are we always present in the moment God has us in? Are we serving where God has placed us faithfully? Are we ALWAYS ready to follow God’s direction and prompting? Imagine someone is house-sitting for you while you’re on holiday. Wouldn’t you like to think that you could come home at any moment and your house was treated as you had asked and things were kept in order, rather than a house sitter running around in panic to have everything sitting perfectly before you arrive home? The Lord calls us to be consistently faithful. How can we do this?




Consider the opportunities you are faced with every day: When you walk the dog,, in the workplace, with your family,, at the dinner table. Ask God for guidance and to show you how to be FULLY present where he has placed you.


 With his help you can then pour into the moments which God entrusts us with every day. Love and prayers Revd Sara
