THE UNSEEN WORTH OF DAILY ORDINARINESS

Care and attention normally fall short when it comes to routine, to usual and same people and things of day to day.  Any proof of usefulness and skills displayed out of the most common are hastily subjected to doubt and worst condemned to be strange and therefore unwelcomed.

Jesus suffers the unbelief of his own people due to his being so common, so ordinary village person, a carpenter, a son of a common village mother Mary, and whose sisters are commonly known.  And when he speaks with the authority of righteousness and truth, people find him so strange and so unworthy of belief and respect.

On this premise, the Gospel reinstate the perennial value and worth of each and daily routine, of each and most common, ordinary people and things that come our way.  It is in the usual and most obvious realities that we find the rich hidden treasure worthy of our belief and respect.

May we be so enriched by the unseen value of life’s daily ordinariness.  Amen.
