This passage continues the conversation of yesterday’s readings. Jesus goes back over their Jewish history and reminds them that there have been pivotal times when, at a moment’s notice, something happened. Jesus wants us to be ready – at any time and any place – for God to act... or for that matter, for life to happen! Jesus’ point: “If you try to hold on to life in fear, you will lose it. If you live life in a sense of expectancy, holding it loosely, you will be ready to respond without regret.
“Am I ready, Lord? What if this was my list day – would I have regrets? Show me where I can make strategic change to live life, holding it loosely, each day as a gift. Amen.”
