Daily Reading

Martha said to Jesus, "I know he will rise again"

Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 


Ready to receive the kingdom of heaven

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;  when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.


"The heavenly treasure and the pearl of great price"

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up;


"The righteous will shine like the sun in the Father's kingdom"

Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the  field."


"Not to be served but to serve"

Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him, with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something.  And he said to her, "What do you want?" She said to him, "Command that these two sons of mine may sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom."  But Jesus answered, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?" They said to him, "We are able."  He said to them, "You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."  And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers.  But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over  them.  It shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant,  and whoever would be first among you must be your slave;  even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

- Matthew 20:20-28

Meditation: Who doesn't want to be first, and to be esteemed and honored by others?We seem to have an unquenchable thirst for recognition and fame, power and authority to rule our own lives as we please as well as the lives of others.Should we be surprised to see the disciples of Jesus thirsting for power, position, and authority? James and John, the sons of Zebedee, urged their mother to strike a deal with Jesus, their Master and Messiah. They wanted the distinction of being first and most important in position, next to Jesus, of course!

"Lord Jesus, make me a servant of love for your kingdom, that I may seek to serve rather than be served. Inflame my heart with love that I may give generously and serve joyfully for your sake."


"Give us each day our daily bread"

He was praying in a certain place, and when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples."
