“Losing the Ego”

Lk. 14:1, 7-14 “Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.”  The lessons of the past two days are teaching us that to follow Jesus we must give up our ego–to give him our all–to put ourselves second.It takes time, to become immersed in God means working daily.  I have a couple of friends who “defend their rights”–will get into fist fights, insist on their own way–the reality is their egos are at the front of their lives.  Jesus calls us to give up our egos–and when we do that we find we can work with people, have peace, care for people–and people will have enough to eat, housing, health care–for in giving up our egos and putting Jesus first we move into equality. Spent yesterday moving blankets and doing outreach. It was touching to have James help me and feel so much value in work. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
