Tuesday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time
From today’s gospel:
They had been discussing among themselves
on the way who was the greatest.
From today’s first reading:
So submit yourselves to God.
Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you…
…Humble yourselves before the Lord
and he will exalt you.
Lord, I surrender to you. So many times in my life, I’ve felt self-secure, in total control, master of my own destiny and of the lives of everyone within (and outside of) my circle. Time and again, Lord, you have proven me wrong. Help me to be simple, like a little child.
Show me, Lord, your way, your truth, and your life, that I may follow you, imitate you, and even walk alongside you, as companion and friend.
