Our Choice!

When it comes to faith and risk, cowards go nowhere in the scriptures.  Instead, they try to bribe people, like Antiochus in the book of Maccabees who offered “friendship” to the youngest Maccabean son.  And there is the servant in the Gospel of Luke with a gold coin who buries his treasure along with his creativity.

Jesus calls us his friends when we are industrious, diligent and co-creative in building the kingdom!  In the words of the “most admirable and worthy of everlasting remembrance” Maccabean Mother, “Be worthy.”
