Hospitality in the Presence of God–Being Present With Him

Hospitality in the Presence of God--Being Present With Him

The Right Rev Daniel Martins, guest priest, homily for the 6th Sunday after Pentecost, 07/17/2022.

In today’s Gospel (Luke 10), Jesus is visiting two sisters, Mary and Martha. Mary was sitting at the feet of Jesus, listening to every word. Martha was distracted by household hospitality. She asked Jesus to have Mary go to the kitchen to help. Jesus replied that Mary had made the best choice and that that would not be taken away from her.

In another Old Testament lesson, Genesis 18, Abraham provides hospitality to three visiting Angels. Hospitality in the Presence of God is the best choice.

All of us face multiple distractions. It is important to maintain focus on the presence of God and on being with him.

(Readings: Amos 8: 1-12; Genesis 18: 1-8; Psalm 52; Colossians 1: 15-28; Luke 10: 38-42)
