“this is what the Lord asks of you, only this: that you act justly, that you love tenderly and walk humbly with your God”.
“Always have your answer ready”
You’re on University Challenge. “Here’s your starter for ten”, says Jeremy Paxman. “Why are you a believer in this day and age?” Will your answer be convincing enough to get to the bonus questions, where this can be unpacked in more detail? Stock answers to certain questions are usually not good. However, a well-prepared brief reflection to the above question is useful. It never looks good to hang one’s head and say, “I can’t really explain”. Hope is often transmitted invisibly to others. The more yours grows as you follow the Lord, the more you’ll be asked that question. Be prepared. It’s too important not to be! For the bonus questions will then help to win the prize!
Prayer of the Faithful:
Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit, give us the courage to witness to our faith and to be prepared to give an account of the hope that is within us.
