For today’s readings, it is important to focus on the idea of faith. We see that in Romans Chapter 4, Abraham is mentioned for his work in faith and God. Although he had no idea that he would become the father of all nations, he only had to do one thing: to believe. Rather than choosing to  believe in himself, his family, or his descendants to carry on his work and legacy,  he chose to believe in the Alpha and Omega, and to allow God to fulfill the promises he’d made to Abraham. Though he would never see the full rewards of his faith, we can see that Abraham truly believed in God. In the same way, we should all step forward today and reinforce our faith in God. It is not about our glory, our name or our legacies lasting forever. Instead, we should continue to hope that God will always have our interest at hand, and that he will never give us a task that we cannot handle. May we continue to rely on God for strength and wisdom all the days of our lives. Thank you.
