(Our Lady of Mt. Carmel)
Jesus said, “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” Mt_10:34-11:1
So, where is God in your priority list, beloved? Is He in your every thought? Maybe every other thought? Maybe just a couple of times a day? Jesus is asking us to lose our lives for Him. That means, well, whatever it means for us, but keeping Him on top of the list!
Was just thinking, it’s only 162 more days ’til Christmas. No more bugs. No more high 90s temperatures. And best of all, our list-topper, Jesus! Incarnation – for love of us!
OH what love!
