Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta reminded us that, “We are called to faithfulness, not success.”
How can we be faithful though, when so many who call themselves Christians, fail and cause scandal?
The first reading from Deuteronomy offers us this assurance:
“I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kin, and will put my words into his mouth;
he shall tell them all that I command him.
Whoever will not listen to my words which he speaks in my name, I myself will make him answer for it.
But if a prophet presumes to speak in my name an oracle that I have not commanded him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, he shall die.’”
God has a way of working all these things out so Let’s be faithful!
