Jesus passed through towns and villages.

Sunday prayer: Lord Jesus, help us to be better stewards of the earth.  We don’t always take care of it as we should.  Our oceans have become filled with pollutants.  Our forests are diminishing.  Trash and litter have become commonplace – part of the scenery.  Help us to reverse this cycle so we can truly enjoy the sanctuary You have given us.  Amen.  
Luke 13:22-30

Jesus passed through towns and villages,
teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem.
Someone asked him,
"Lord, will only a few people be saved?"
He answered them,
"Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter
but will not be strong enough.
After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door,
then will you stand outside knocking and saying,
'Lord, open the door for us.'
He will say to you in reply,
'I do not know where you are from.
And you will say,
'We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.'
Then he will say to you,
'I do not know where you are from.
Depart from me, all you evildoers!'
And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth
when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
and all the prophets in the kingdom of God
and you yourselves cast out.

And people will come from the east and the west

and from the north and the south

and will recline at table in the kingdom of God.
For behold, some are last who will be first,
and some are first who will be last."

Refection question: How do I except people in my own life, do I have an open heart like Jesus?
