Therefore, brothers and sisters, holy partners in a heavenly calling, consider that Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses also "was faithful in all God's house." (Hebrews 3:1-2 NRSV)

Two people where talking about their problems while exercising at the gym. One said to the other, "Just when I learn to take things with a grain of salt, the doctor puts me on a salt-free diet!"

Of course, there are many things we should not take with a grain of salt.

Every worthwhile endeavor in life is potentially a calling from God. Martin Luther helped us see that. Until Luther's time work was viewed by Christian theologians as punishment for sin. When Adam sinned, part of the penalty was that he should work. "Not so," said Luther. Luther saw a person's work as his calling from God.

May all of us do our work in a way that fulfills our calling from God.


Dear God, guide me as I fulfill your calling for my life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
