Wednesday 2nd week of Lent
Jesus summoned them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt. But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Another occasion for Jesus to stress the importance of the virtue of humility. It would appear that his disciples wasn't getting the message the first time. In a world of 'I want' and 'gimme' Jesus addresses the call to service, to take care of the needs of others.
Has Lent become challenging for you yet? We continue on.
The Season of Lent is a special time for us to slow down, look inward and make the necessary changes to truly become an Easter people.
