God is ready to spend. Are you ready?

Quote . . .

You, made in God’s image,
stamped with God’s likeness,
you are God’s valuable coin.
God intends to spend you
according to God’s desire,
to spend you on life,
on what delights God.

Read Spent, a reflection by Steve Garnaas-Holmes on Matthew 22:15-21
(the Gospel text for Sunday 10/16/2011).

I am grateful for writers, poets, and the power of words. I am grateful for this reflection by Pastor Steve. Let us resolve, fellow travelers, to be spent by God as we journey together through this place at this time.
