Men nurturing men on their spiritual journey.
Today’s Gospel parable speaks to generosity. In the deep of night, a sleepy friend responds to his neighbor’s request for food for an unexpected guest. Jesus suggests that it would be unthinkable that a friend would deny a friend in need. A friend would most certainly give what is asked and more. Through this story, Jesus illustrates God’s generosity. Good stewards realize extraordinary love and graciousness with which God showers us. We need never convince God to generous. God is already that generous friend. His abundant love bathes us in goodness. This week, prayerfully reflect on God’s generosity and what our response should be to that generosity.
