Reflections for Sunday November 18, 2012

Jesus began to say to them, “Beware that no one leads you astray.” Mark 13:5

Many long for the end of the world, and believe it is imminent.
They seek to apply biblical pronouncements to modern events. Yet Jesus emphatically tells us not to get caught up in such nonsense. Speaking to the disciples he points out that life will go on, and there will be horrible times, and yet the world will carry on. Over and again scripture reminds us that it is how we live now that matters, not what might happen later.

  • How often do you think of the end of the world?
  • What feelings accompany those thoughts?
