We are meant to be missionaries of mercy, justice and compassion.

“For the one who is least among all of you is the one who is the greatest.”
This teaching from Jesus is nonsensical to our culture…as well as to our egos.
Our culture and our egos espouse the opposite view…that the one who finishes first…the one who defeats everyone else…the one who has the most…is greatest.
Not so says Jesus.
The one looked upon as the “least” by our culture…is the “greatest” in the eyes of God.
Jesus tells us that God is at the center of our lives…not our egos. Our egos must step aside. As Jesus said to God, “Not my will but yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
Living out the unconditional Love of God is the objective…even in the face of persecution.
Especially in the face of persecution!
If you are a “Christian” you are called to serve those in need.
“Whatever you did for one of these least of these, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40)…Jesus said. Those with little are not bound my many attachments.
Jesus called us to follow him on that path.
But as Gandhi is reported to have said: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
Who is speaking and working on behalf of “the least of these” today?
We need more people who are both working for justice and acting with compassion.
Please ponder this in your heart with Love.
