“…If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” Mark 9:35 gives us a glimpse into the futility of some of our own efforts to succeed–and the fallacies of our ideas of what success really IS! God is, always and forever, trying to act in and through and AS us! As we dedicate ourselves–our hearts and minds and works–to doing “God’s work,” we will draw to ourselves the power of God’s Will, God’s Law, God’s Order! God will have our back in every situation! Our path, whichever way it takes us, will, in the end, lead us to a success greater, more joy-filled and satisfying than we could have imagined at the outset of our journey! This week, we are invited to examine our motives for the presence of that most important desire to SERVE; to DO good, to BE the Christ in manifestation! Our success assured, we will KNOW peace, love and unspeakable joy!
