Daily Lectionary Reading: Psalm 9:1-14 (NRSV, The Message); Job 16:1-21 (NRSV, The Message) Matthew 24:45-51 (NRSV, The Message)
“Who is the faithful, farsighted worker whom the owner of the house puts in charge of the household to provide for their needs at the appropriate times? Happy are the workers whom the owners find at their work upon their return. The truth is, they will be given more responsibility.  But if the worker is worthless and thinks, ‘The owners will be away a long time,’ and browbeats the other workers, eating and drinking to excess, the owners will return on a day when least expected, at the unknown hour. They will scourge the lout, assigning the hypocrite to that place where there is wailing and the grinding of teeth.
Matthew 24:45-51 (The Inclusive Bible)
We are in the in-between, in between what is and what will be. Of course, "what willl be" is understood many different ways by many people. However, there is little doubt as to what we should be doing in the meantime. We are to be caring for one another's needs, not brow (or otherwise) beating them.
