Prayer - September 27, 2022
Rev. Stephen Gibson, C.S.C.

Dear Lord, help us be resolute in following through on our commitments. Let us have the wisdom to say “Yes” to what really matters, and the discipline to keep our word. We ask your courage to say “No” to that which pulls us out of balance with you. Amen.

The Marriage Metaphor
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 91–93
Romans 15:1–13
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Today's Scripture & Insight:

Ephesians 4:2–13
After twenty-two years together, I sometimes wonder how my marriage to Merryn works. I’m a writer; Merryn is a statistician. I work with words; she works with numbers. I want beauty; she wants function. We come from different worlds.

Merryn arrives to appointments early; I’m occasionally late. I try new things on the menu; she orders the same. After twenty minutes at an art gallery, I’m just getting started, while Merryn is already in the cafe downstairs wondering how much longer I’ll be. We give each other many opportunities to learn patience!

We do have things in common—a shared sense of humor, a love of travel, and a common faith that helps us pray through options and compromise as needed. With this shared base, our differences even work to our advantage. Merryn has helped me learn to relax, while I’ve helped her grow in discipline. Working with our differences has made us better people.

Paul uses marriage as a metaphor for the church (Ephesians 5:21–33), and with good reason. Like marriage, church brings very different people together, requiring them to develop humility and patience and to “[bear] with one another in love” (4:2). And, as in marriage, a shared base of faith and mutual service helps a church become unified and mature (vv. 11–13).

Differences in relationships can cause great frustration—in the church and in marriage. But managed well, they can help us become more Christlike.

Heavenly Father, please use our differences to help us mature. Amen.
