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

Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee, but he did not wish anyone to know about it. He was teaching his disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man is to be handed over to men and they will kill him, and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.” But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to question him.

They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house, he began to ask them, “What were you arguing about on the way?” But they remained silent. They had been discussing among themselves on the way who was the greatest. Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” Taking a child, he placed it in their midst, and putting his arms around it, he said to them, “Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.”

Are you as trusting as a child? Do you love like a child? It does not mean to be childish, it means to be open, willing to accept the love that is given to you without boundaries or reservations. Loving God completely, totally and trusting in Him is what He asks of us. Can you do that? Do you?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I love and trust you completely and without reservation. Help me to always accept your will as my own. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.

The Lord upholds my life.
