Today is a day to pause and reflect over our readings. In our last reading Paul urged the Thessalonians to live to please the Lord and continue to do so more and more. Note, there is no time that we can declare we have arrived, transformation is a journey throughout our whole life. The old saying is if you are not moving forward you are going backwards, there is no retirement and there is no vacation in this journey. A good question to ask ourselves today would be: “What is direction of my spiritual journey?” If we are not investing in this journey, we are digressing.
