I have to tell you, today’s gospel reading gives me a little bit of a panic attack deep down inside! I tend to over-pack, and really, over-prepare for everything. Even though I was never a boy scout, the whole idea of being prepared just really resonates with me. And so when Jesus says we shouldn’t have a walking stick, food, money or a second tunic, well it’s almost hard for me to breathe! But the invitation is a good one, especially for those of us who tend to over-prepare. We are being invited to trust God first and foremost. If we accept that invitation, think of what great things God will be able to do in us and through us!
