May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

Jesus said to the Apostles: “Who among you would say to your servant who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’? Would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am finished’? Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded? So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.’”

We should not expect accolades or thank you’s for doing what the commandments call us to do. We should do it out of love for God and be grateful we had the chance to serve Him. Our lives do not belong to us, they belong to God and our goal should be to serve Him with all we have to give Him. Who do you serve?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I offer you all I have, all I am and all I ever will be to your service. May I only do your will and not seek any glory from man. In Jesus’ holy name, amen!

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
