Readings for Today

Are you all in? That is an interesting expression to describe when we hold nothing back. While it is often used in an athletic context, it can also mean any part of our lives where we need to give our all to something. 

In both readings, it is the widow who is the hero of the story. Why is this? Because both the widow who encounters Elijah, and the widow in the gospel who gives from her want, each of them is completely in with God. The trust each shows to God is total.

What about you and me? All in? Or is it the case the trust shown is “surplus” trust in God? Will you go wherever God leads? Say yes. Go all in.
