Jesus tells a story about bridesmaids and a bridegroom, lamps and oil. His lesson for listeners is one about the importance of nurturing our faith and relationship with God. When we feel disinterested or even bored with faith, we must continue to seek God and practice God’s love in our lives. Our daily actions should reflect “keeping faith”; these actions can be the oil that fuels our lamps. Our participation in a community of faith is one way to encounter God and deepen our faith through relationship with one another.
This week, do at least one thing that will nurture your faith each day. You might read a psalm each day or read through the previous week’s scriptures. If your church has any fellowship or faith sharing activities this week, plan to attend at least one of them.
