Life Thoughts from Lutherans for Life . . . “Faithful” is the key word in Matthew 25:14-30. “Faithful” is the key word as we live trusting in God Who united us with Christ’s death and resurrection in our baptism. He calls us to remain faithful to His truth, and we dare not “bury” any of it-such as truths about life and marriage-simply because they are controversial. While avoiding such issues may bring praises from people, we desire to hear our God say, “Well done good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21a). Prayer: Father, give us courage to be faithful to all aspects of Your truth. Amen.
