January 21, 2024 – Third Sunday after the Epiphany

Jesus at the Center

Silos are used by farmers to hold one thing. How often do we segregate our lives into separate silos? Family, money, work, vacation, religion—each in their own separate container never to be mixed or commingled. In today’s Epistle, Paul invites us to bring our marriage relationships into harmony with our relationship with God through faith in Jesus, who is at the heart of all our human relationships. This way, our lives are more like wheels, with many spokes connected by a hub. Jesus is the only hub of the wheel of our lives that can hold together all our spokes in an integrated and fully functional manner. God’s gracious invitation is to live life not as silos but as wheels—with Jesus at the center of everything.
