The Theophany Prayer of St. Sophronius of Jerusalem

Saturday, January 14, 2017

Trinity above being, above goodness, above divinity, all-powerful, all-seeing, invisible, incomprehensible, creator of all spiritual beings and rational natures; goodness itself, the inaccessible light enlightening all who come into the world, shine in me, Your unworthy servant, and enlighten the eyes of my understanding, that I may make bold to praise Your infinite benevolence and power. May my prayer for the people here present be well-pleasing; Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 129: Partnering with God (1/15/17)

Sunday, January 15, 2017

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 RSV)

Being a human is certainly a challenge. Being a Christian is yet even more daunting. But being an Orthodox Christian is the ultimate in demanding. God’s work is to be accomplished among us both individually and as a group, the Church. Each of us seeks to return to the state in which human beings were created. We have been endowed with the God-like image of Christ and have full potential to make that return. As well, our work is not limited to what we try to do for ourselves, but what we can accomplish as partners with God for all of His creation.

Speaking in classical stewardship terms, for example, God has not only required of us to give a portion of what we consider ours (the tithe?), He requires of us that all we have be used to His glory. “…whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:15 RSV). Consider the implications: there must be no waste of His goods on unnecessary luxuries; there is to be no waste of His goods on pride (like in dress, or the latest electronics, or the best luxury automobile).
