Wednesday: Wanting the Place of Honor

Jesus told James and John that the greatest in the Kingdom is the humble servant. How much of my busy-ness is designed to gain a “place of honor”? Do I need to revise my thinking in this area?

“Power” – Faith:

In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us how the Gentiles used their “power” to assert their authority over others. Such temptations are strong and prevalent in our secular societies. Our low-self esteem and self-centeredness will incite desires to have “power” over others.


Peace is a fruit of love, and love flowers in the person oriented toward God. The greatest privilege that can come to a person is to have his life God-directed.

- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
