I don’t have much to say about today’s reading other than to point out it is full of imagery and prophesy of what is to one day come. I think it is easy for some people to dwell on all the suffering and pain that is yet to come. But God did not ask us to focus on the future, He asked us to focus on the serving others today, and to be an example of who Christ was on this earth. The rest will happen according to His timing and will.
