Gratitude is the best preparation
There are lots of things you can’t prepare for in life. For good or ill, some things just happen. The way you respond, however, is a different story. In those cases, even when the unknown and unexpected befalls you, practice makes perfect. In those moments, the way you live your life takes control. If you live in gratitude, you will respond with gratitude; if you carry bitterness, you will respond in anger. Being in practice today can make all the difference tomorrow. It’s then that you’ll be called to demonstrate the faith that you strived to practice all along.
Today’s readings: Revelation 15:1-4; Luke 21:12-19 (505). “Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking.”
