LECTIO DIVINA REFLECTION… (from Gospel reading below)
WHAT IS THE LORD PERSONALLY SAYING TO ME?
Being Christ’s is more important than anything on this earth! Our entire journey is about getting to heaven. We need to remember this and prioritize it daily. We need to rise above the pettiness that keeps us down in the troubles of this world.
WHAT DOES THE LORD PERSONALLY WANT ME TO DO?
Write this down and post it on the fridge or on my phone. Write down my complaints or worries in a separate notebook and stop voicing them out loud for everyone to hear.
Have a mantra, like; “Rise Above…” or “Carry Your Cross…”
Lord, I want to be one of your disciples. Help me to Know, Love, and Serve you better in my daily life. Help me to prioritize my schedule so that all that I do is pleasing to you and will help lead others to you. Help me to “Rise Above” all the pettiness in my life and to “Carry my Cross” so that it leads me and others to you. All for the Glory of God…
Gospel Reading: Luke 14:25-33
25 Great crowds were traveling with him, and he turned and addressed them, 26 “If any one comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. 28 Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion? 29 Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him 30 and say, ‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’ 31 Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down and decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops? 32 But if not, while he is still far away, he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms. 33 In the same way, everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.
