..Then he sat down called the twelve, and said to them, If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all...and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.........
I absolutely love this Gospel. Our Priest put it poiniently when he explained that serving as a Disciple is more than our Status, Job Title, Material Things, it is a calling beyond that. Oh, How I admire that Reading. I pray on actions, reactions, talents and paths that DH and I chose for our family. Prime example happened a couple weeks ago: DH was offered a local job from another company. The difference was in excess of 20,000. Great, huh? Well, the company is much smaller than the company he was working for. He accepted it then rescinded after the company he was working for told him that they couldn't match/negotiate the pay. The company did coax him into thinking, thou, that stability is most important and to think twice which is why DH rescinded his original acceptance. Well, the VP of the Company that made the offer, called him over the weekend. He asked what had happened. DH told him that because of outside influences, he was really thinking twice. DH slept on it. We both talked about it. Then DH decided to take the job. I look at DH in a bit of a humble and proud way. It appears to me that he was looking beyond money, which I hope this company he is now working for is looking at too. DH is a very agressive, go getter, kind of worker and very trust worth and loyal worker too. It's an additional blessing when you know there is support and acknowledgement for it too.......
Just my take on the Gospel. Sorry for the Book ;)
