Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 19, 2015:

wisdom 062915

When Jesus went into the region of Caesaria Philippi He asked His disciples,  “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”  They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”  Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus said to Him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah.  For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, bu tmy heavenly Father.  And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.  I WILL GIVE YOU THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  WHATEVER YOU BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN; AND WHATEVER YOU LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.”

-From the Gospel of Matthew 16: 13-19

HUMBLE GARMENTS

 Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 25, 2015:

wisdom 042515

5 In the same way, younger people, be subject to the elders. Humility towards one another must be the garment you all wear constantly, because God opposes the proud but accords his favor to the humble.

6 Bow down, then, before the power of God now, so that he may raise you up in due time; 7 unload all your burden on to Him, since He is concerned about you.

8 Keep sober and alert, because your enemy the devil is on the prowl like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

9 Stand up to Him, strong in faith and in the knowledge that it is the same kind of suffering that the community of your brothers throughout the world is undergoing.

10 You will have to suffer only for a little while: the God of all grace who called you to eternal glory in Christ will restore you, He will confirm, strengthen and support you.

11 His power lasts for ever and ever. Amen.

  • From First Peter 5:5-14

Reflections:

  • Are we humble?
  • Are we willing to learn or be taught by others?
  • Are we ready to serve others for His glory without expecting anything in return?

Saint of the Day:

St. Mark, pray for us.

Stay humble,

Brother Mo
