Saints Timothy and Titus
Of all people, one would have thought that those closest to Jesus would have been most sympathetic and understanding. Instead, they began questioning the sanity of Jesus. And, he begins by preaching new teachings which are contrary to what the Pharisees and the Sadducees practice. What appalled Jesus’ friends were the great risks he was taking. However, safety and security were not the essence of Jesus’ life. He was willing to risk all for the sake of God’s will. Are we willing to take risks in the name of Jesus?
