Matthew 13:58 — Jesus came to his home town, where was greeted with suspicion. We are told that "he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith." Is this because His miracles depended on the faith of the onlookers? No, it seems that Jesus was simply exercising good time management. His time was limited, so why not go somewhere where His message would be heard instead of spending time where it would not? It gives us pause to consider where the Lord wants us to spend our time. Our time, too, is limited. Why waste it where it will do little good? (Lord, give me the grace of Holy Time Management: discretion to see where I can invest best the time you've given me, and the courage to walk away from those things that are not helping me to grow in love for You.)
