We find the wise people in our corner, for me my Aunt Mary Born in Modugna Italy, told me the story of carrying a candle. Wisdom is carrying the candle, the light in the darkest night. Deborah was the wisdom leader of the day, judge of Israel. Wisdom delivers, return, in the sobering journey, inhabit the social vision of Torah. We are called to take position and weave what is right with our eyes. We are called to navigate through moral chaos, called to be strength and observe the habits of faithfulness. The day of the lord will come. The Parousia, called to be children of the light. We belong to the day, keep awake, bring our imagination, frame relationship, be the identity of wisdom. The day of the Lord is Christ as day and dawn, soul to life. We are given talents to use immediately. Meet the present, God has done and God will do. For all those who have, more will be given, and they will have abundance.
