Dimensions of Faith

gospel-of-lukeIn the gospel of Luke, there are several parables which discuss the dimensions of faith. In these parables it is obvious that God is the Master and we are the servants. Sometimes though our faith gets twisted and we end up imitating the Master rather than being the servant. It is not surprising to realize how often people really do manufacture a God in their own image rather than listening to what God wants of us. Obviously, it is easier to take and easier to understand if we fashion God into what we want. But if that happens, the result is that this is our God and not the God who created us. And so, as members of the Brophy community, we have to be careful that we emphasize the God who created us even if what happens to us is not what we would choose and prefer.
