Wednesday of the Second Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

If David had advanced against the Philistine with the finest weapons and the most advanced armor possible, the story we have in our first reading would just be nice.  But instead of relying on all kinds of technology to take down the giant, he relied on something more certain than technology and way bigger than the giant: he relied on the power of God’s grace.  And that, my friends, makes for a darn good story!  So what huge, giant thing are you facing these days?  Have you been relying on yourself and on everything but God to slay it?  If so, it’s not going to happen.  But relying on God for the grace we need in every situation is the technology that has power to not just change our situation, but even to change us.  And that’s a story worth telling!
