A way to live at home and with friends:
Work for a loving, empowering home even though it is hard to do. As much as you succeed, do not brag; just give thanks to God for being able to do so.
Based on Luke 17:5-10
[A way to live at home and with friends based on a reading from The Revised Common Lectionary for the Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost, 10/2/16. The twelve disciples ask Jesus to increase their faith. Jesus answers that they should take impossibilities in their stride. For example, even though a tree has deep roots in the ground, in faith, they could say, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea;” and it would do so. He goes on to say you do not build up merit or points with God. Like a slave, you should do what you are told to do without being thanked for doing what is expected of you.
A theme: Don’t worry about what looks impossible to do. Also do what God asks without expecting to win God’s special favor.]
