Scripture again today brings up the issue of who’s the greatest.
Jesus realized the intention of their hearts and took a child and placed it by his side and said to them, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. For the one who is least among all of you is the one who is the greatest.”
I sure do not feel like the greatest and I know I am far from it. I think that is another reason why I really like Pope Francis. He takes the title, servant of the servants of Christ to heart. I heard he was invited to a dinner with many of our great leaders. He humbly declined and went and met with prisoners.
It’s hard for me to write tonight. I have grasped for peace today. I think I am faking it more than actually living with it. I am still at work, a little downtrodden, some problems at home and annoyed at work. Thanks be to God for the grace to accept whatever God permits to happen to me and especially for the grace to not take my feelings out in actions on anyone else. Lord, I am very thankful.
I guess in a way I was of service today in not taking away the joy of others while in my own mood of funkiness. Just thinking about it makes me feel pretty good! I have come a long way and I must share my gratitude for all the blessings in my life. Who is the greatest? You are Lord. You gave everything out of love for Your children. Alleluia!
