(22nd Sunday Ordinary Time, C)
Jesus said, “every one who exalts himself will be humbled,
but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” Lk 14:1, 7-14
Remember that bully kid, Biff,
in Back to the Future?
If you ever watch the whole series,
it’s fun to see what happens in the end
to the one who exalted himself
and the family who were humble.
Maybe we think that it’s all just Hollywood.
But ever run into that bully kid from your
Junior High days, years later?
Jesus is always right! So stop fretting over it.
May He bless you with the strength to survive it –
if you’re in the midst of it now.
But know, in consolation, beloved,
that the future is in God’s hands.
And God is JUST!
Just wait and see.
It’ll all be worth it!
