2 Corinthians 9: 6-10. Happy the merciful who give to the needy – Ps 111 (112): 1-2, 5-9. John 12: 24-26.
If a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it brings a bountiful harvest
“He who loves his life will lose it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am my servant will be. The Father will honor everyone who serves me ”. (John 12: 25-26)
Like a grain of wheat, we must all die for this world in order to bear the fruit God asks of us. But fear can keep us in our current state. Holding on to our goals, hopes and dreams. Holding onto what we want in our lives instead of dying from these things keeps us from the future that God has planned. But submission to God’s will opens us to a world that is only possible if we surrender everything to him. All we have to do is practice letting go.
Lord, may I turn away from the life that I have designed for myself and toward the life that you have planned for me. May I serve you and always have you close to me.
