Sermon excerpt:

One of my very favorite words is “quotidian.” And one of the reasons I like it so much is that it’s just a fancy way of saying “ordinary.” Ours is a quotidian yet profound faith; a faith of the ins and outs of every day; a life of faithfulness in little things which trains us to faithful in bigger things.

Too often we get distracted by the big things, thinking we need to solve all the world’s problems. But maybe this parable is telling us that it’s a more prudent and responsible use of our time and God’s resources to be faithful in the little things; maybe it’s about being good managers of our money and possessions to make a difference here, in our little corner of the world God has entrusted to us.

Not in a big, flashy way but in a quiet, quotidian, faithful little way that may not win us awards here on earth, but when all the money and all the possessions gone, we will be welcomed into “eternal homes” for a life well-managed.
