Pastor's sermon was about being "great" today. Greatness meaning who is the most important... you know; top dog, head honcho, big cheese....
I think you know where I am going with this, God's most important is pretty much the opposite of the world's most important. Here, in the world, the most money gets you the best seat, the biggest house, the fastest car, the best cut of meat...
The Lord would say that the weakest, lowest, most needful person is the most important. The ones who are furthest from him are his most cherished. We will ALL be there at times in our lives. It is at that time that He will lift us up and carry us in our journey.
I have had a week. I am not proud of my thoughts and actions. I put myself first before others who needed more than me. I thought because I was strong enough to 'get through' that I was better. But I am not. I am not the best. Pastor's sermon gently reminded me to always think of who Jesus would want to help first. The ones who do not know Him. The ones who desperately need Him. I have not done that this week. I am the example for my children. I must be a better example. I begged for forgiveness this morning.
Now I have to get my mind off of my bad week and remember that He has forgiven me. What to do?
I think I will bake some banana bread and some zucchini squares. Yum.
Think about others today.
And an argument arose among them as to which of them might be the greatest.
But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking in their heart, took a child and
stood him by His side, and said to them, "Whoever receives this child in My name
receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me; for he who is
least among you, this is the one who is great." (Luke 9:46-48).
