Disciples on a Journey
November 5, 2023
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened.”
People reaching for God and God reaching for people. We can’t get there on our own.
In today’s Gospel we hear: “Call no one on earth your father; you have but one Father in heaven. Do not be called ‘Master’; you have but one master, the Christ.
The greatest among you must be your servant.”
Putting God at the center of life…
I was part of a conversation last week about the importance of putting the needs of other people first.
That led me to remember the thought….to put God first, others next and yourself last. I think my ability to put God first is a combination of what I’ve been taught, how I have come to understand my Catholic faith, and my personality. It is a daily choice for me to realize that I need to put God at the center of my life.
So, I must always consider, “what does it mean to be a servant?” What does it mean to you to be a servant? Who do you serve? How do you balance the needs in your life of being a servant and also keeping yourself physically, mentally and spiritually healthy? ~Sharon
