Thought For a Tuesday

“If we say that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, if we portend to follow him, then we also live by him and abide with him in our daily lives.  The path he calls us to is not easy, for it is not the road the world knows.  Jesus Christ demands sacrifice, humility, and selflessness, just as he demands compassion, reconciliation, and justice for the world:  ‘Lord Jesus, shackle my ankle to yours this day, so that it would not be you accompanying me on my way, but me bound to you at every moment.'”
