🎤LIVE FOR GOD AND FOR OTHERS
Do you want to be faithful to God? Then you definitely need to be very selfless. Think about God and others first, and be sure that God will never leave you empty handed. That is an important message that we must pick out from Luke 9:1-6, which is seen lived out by Ezra in Ezra 9:5-9, by carrying the burden of his people and intercepting for in humility.
Jesus sent out his disciples on mission with the instruction not to carry anything that will make them to focus on self-satisfaction. But he equipped them with the needed power to bring the good news to all. At our baptism, we all also received that same power but many of us silence ours with selfish drives.
Are you using your own gifts selflessly for God and for others?
May God help us to be dedicated and selfless in service, and so win souls for him while not losing our own souls. Amen.
Have a fruitful and fulfilled day ahead. Peace be with you.
