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 he 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."
God is so good to me...Sunday morning I was blessed to be brought communion. As I was listening to the above gospel, I tried hard to concentrate, I had tears in my eyes at the thought of Jesus coming to me. Then reality hit as I heard my four younger boys playing up stairs above me...all I could hear was the nine year old yelling..."Luke, Luke, I am your father!" They were playing star wars with the two year old...then I heard the three year old riding a truck in the other room pushing the buttons that made it sound like a mac truck backing up...
"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."
Ok, Lord I will!!!
THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+
