After the test

After the Test

 

It’s true in every classroom and study hall, with every test and every exam. At test time, no one’s an atheist. Everyone prays at test time. That is, everyone prays before the test. Crack open a particularly hard test booklet and the prayers begin.

Prayers are offered before the big test, and prayers are uttered as students struggle for answers and solutions. Before and during. But, how many people pray after a test? For that matter, how many of us who call on the Almighty to solve any problem, also remember, in heartfelt gratitude, to thank him when he answers?

Jesus told a story concerning the healing of ten lepers. Though all were healed, only one returned to give thanks. Only one said, “Thank You,” afterward (from Luke 17). This isn’t just about tests. Our gracious Heavenly Father deserves our attention each time he answers prayer. A simple prayer of thanks is appropriate every time the Lord answers and delivers us. After.

Stewardship Today is a monthly devotional newsletter designed to assist Catholics everywhere in developing a greater understanding of the role of stewardship in everyday life.
All we are, and all we possess, are gifts from God for our use and for the blessing of others. Through wise stewardship, we invest our time, our talents and our treasures to the glory of God.
