“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 10:31

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Many who are first will be last,

and the last will be first.”

.

– Mark 10:31 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

In the context of the passage where these words of the Lord are being quoted,

Jesus was explaining that in God’s kingdom

there is no advantage, status or honour.

.

Jealousies, inflated egos and lofty ambitions

certainly do not belong in Heaven,

so it would be a good thing for us who are striving towards eternal life with the Lord

to never stop looking very closely and honestly at ourselves,

and keeping our character and intentions in check.

.

We need to be humble.

We need to become more like Jesus.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, help me be more like You.
