Jesus said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.” Jn 13:16-20
In one sense or another we all have masters. If not our bosses at work, our spouses, even our children are at times our masters. But above all God is our true master. We are not God and can never be so. If we understand this then there is a whole new respect within our hearts. A respect that goes not only to God, to Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, but to our brothers and sisters as well; from the poorest street beggar to the high-rise executive. They are all God’s children. THEY may not all realize it. But that’s where we come in, beloved. Through OUR love, they can be saved. Because that love is the love of God in us.
By our understanding, we WILL be blessed! May our loving God bless you always, beloved, with peace and hope and generosity!
