Today’s the feast day of Saint Scholastica. I would call her the patron saint of the weather. You should read up on her though. Fascinating individual. There’s a lot more to her than just the weather.
The reason I bring her up though is because she founded the nunnery. She was WAY ahead of her time, educating women and operating things as the head person in charge. This was unheard of back then for a woman. And what did it all need. MONEY. She didn’t depend on money though, she depended upon God.
Today’s reading is from Mark and I would just like to pull from it the part about corban. What a wonderful example of satan slipping into our lives under the cover of finances. So many people depend so much upon money that they use it to make their decisions.
I beg you to reconsider. I know, you have a mortgage, kids, etc. Guess what. You’re not special. Everybody has financial issues. The poor, the rich, everybody. Use your financial situation to make your decisions and you’ll continue to have those issues.
– Depend on the Lord to lead you. Read your bible. His Word Will Never Lead You Astray.
– Depend on people who are in the position you want to be in. Stop letting naysayers and pescimists poison your thought process. Sometimes this includes family and friends. Don’t shut them out, but understand that they don’t understand what they are perpetuating. In fact, you may be their influence. Lead by example.
– Depend on prayer. You’ll be surprised by what He’ll share with you. All you have to do is ask.
Do I depend on You Lord? What should I be doing more?
