SATURDAY 20th FEBRUARY 2021
“Jesus saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax counter and said to him, “FOLLOW ME.” He left everything and got up and followed him”.
We all have our “tax counter”. We sit at it and from it we pass the tax bill on to everyone, because we believe that everyone is our debtor. Jesus teaches us on this Lenten day to get up and leave our “tax counter” to follow Him.
Stop believing that everyone owes you and has to be grateful to you.
The important thing is to follow Jesus and leave our “taxes” to others.
Like Levi, you too offer a “banquet” in which gratefulness and gratitude are served without measure.
And may this banquet last you every day. I am sure that you will be happy, because in this way Jesus will also sit at your table and will multiply many times over all that you give freely and gratefully.
