“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
There are four realities to which we easily sell ourselves and very easily become their slaves: vanity, power, money and pleasure.
These four realities can cloud our vision and can lead us to lose the direction of our life.
Repeatedly in the Gospel Jesus speaks to us of humility, of not wanting to be served but to serve, of not craving the first places but of giving ourselves to others from the last.
This is the teaching of today’s Gospel. If you really consider others as your brothers and sisters, you will never want to be above them and you will even be glad that they are above you.
St. Therese of the Child Jesus said: “To respond to your love, I too want to desire that my brothers and sisters always put me in last place and convince me that this is precisely my place.
Try to live like this because this is how Jesus lived.
