Today, in Mercy, Isaiah describes the Lord as our Rock who sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.
In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus tells us to be like the wise man who built his house on such rock.
What is that “rock” that gives eternal stability in a tumultuous world?
Jesus says it is “doing God’s will” which we learn by listening for God’s voice in scripture, prayer and the circumstances of our lives.
It is not a part-time pursuit. It takes the full commitment of our heart in trusting relationship with God. It is the work and gift of Advent.
Give yourself the time to receive the Gift.
