Advent 1 - A (December 1, 2019)

Your Father Knows

The Gospel passage used for this Sunday begins at verse 37 of Chapter 24 of Matthew. 
In the verse immediately precedes it, Jesus says, “But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.”

It is this same Father who Jesus earlier in Matthew taught us to pray to as “Our Father” [1] .  Jesus continued in Chapter 6 pointing out that the Father takes care of even the birds of the sky and the grass of the field.   Jesus assured us that “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

It is with this attitude that we must begin the Season of Advent.  It is with this attitude that we must live our daily life as we wait the coming of the Son of Man.
