The long-standing spiritual tradition of the “morning offering” places our daily routine within a faith-filled context. However I pray as I begin the day, God’s good grace frames all I will speak and accomplish in an integrated way. Today’s gospel speaks to this framework of faith: carrying forward the words and work of the Lord in partnership with Jesus, the “One whom God sent.”

Grounded in this daily spiritual framework, perhaps a difficult meeting will go better. Or creative solutions found to a long-standing business challenge. Or the right words to say to someone I meet on the street. Or a smile as I walk into the house after a hectic day. Have faith!
