Watching and working express one of the key themes of the Lectionary Texts for the coming Sunday. Often we favor one end of the spectrum created by these two practices. Jesus calls us to watch and at the same time to work. Most often our working appears like busy work. We instead should view our work as the work of bringing the Kingdom to bear on the world in which we live. Listen for the Tim Keller quote I found on Steve McCoy’s blog. There is something about our message that may be amiss.
