Do you take your faith for granted? Or is it like a lot of married couples: We have been together for so long, we can complete sentences for each other. We can take one another for granted. And at some level that is a good thing. I can take it for granted that my wife will be faithful to me. I can take it for granted that she won’t bust the budget. I don’t have to check her credit card purchases. I only look at them to make sure that nobody is defrauding us with them. After 51 years of marriage, there aren’t a lot of surprises, nor should there be.

At the same time, love calls on us to be attentive to one another and this is where we too often fall down. Sometimes we just don’t listen when our mates talk to us. Sometimes we just go on doing whatever we’re doing and we pay attention with half our mind. Now, that isn’t anything to become upset about, but it is wise to do something about it. We sometimes have to tell our loved one, I need you, right now. Please give me your undivided attention. Now, I want to take a step forward from this and ask if we take our faith for granted in much the same way?
