Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace, which was given me by the working of his power. To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.

Mist in the pulpit means fog in the pews. Have you ever heard that old adage? Clarity in the Church’s teaching is as important in these times as ever before. It seems one cannot sneeze without someone, somewhere getting offended today. Let the Church be known for its wisdom—for sharing the compelling story of God’s love. Rather than news filled with cruel acts of hatred, mass shootings, and division in churches, let us pray that it will be filled with stories of compassion, love, gentleness, and wisdom. Will you take a moment and pray for that today?
