Each one of us has a comfort zone. The problem comes when we are unwilling to leave it……….Always remember that, every time you step out of your comfort zone, you step into God's comfort zone.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt: (1858 – 1919: was an American statesman, politician, conservationist, naturalist, and writer who served as the 26th president of the United States from 1901 to 1909.

Gospel text: (MK 6:1-6)
Jesus departed from there and came to his native place,
accompanied by his disciples.
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.

Reflect, today, upon the will of God for your life right now.  What is it He wants of you?  Is He calling you out of your comfort zone?  Or is He calling you, at this time, to live a more hidden life while you grow in virtue?  Be grateful for whatever His will is for you and embrace it with your whole heart.
