The peace of the Lord be with you. Most of us spend a small amount of time each day cleaning and putting things back in their proper place so our homes are a pleasant place for us and those who stop by.
Today Jesus reminds us it is important to keep our spiritual homes in order as well. You may be thinking how do I keep my spiritual home in order? It is really simple and does not take much time. Spend some time with scripture, spend sometime in prayer or sacred silence, say grace before a meal, be of service to others, and at the conclusion of each day do a brief examination of conscience. Keep it simple. None of these actions need to be drawn out or time consuming — God appreciates our intent. Blessings. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
