“In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds, ‘Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets.”
- Notice whether you have ever been like the scribes seeking a place of honor or whether you shy away from recognition, even if it’s justified.
- What is underneath your stance in this regard?
- Ask for whatever grace you need to become more redeemed in this area of your life.
Heritage word—“Without a struggle we cannot hope to acquire virtue.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
