Be Your Best Self!

Follow Jesus!

“And I have seen and bore witness that is the Son of God!”

John the Baptist was truly a prophet! He knew himself and would be faithful, even unto death! He lived his true self! When he said that Jesus is the Son of God, he meant it with his life!

We begin again the new year, we will have challenges to deal with, how will we respond to these challenges? Will we respond like John the Baptist and possibly lose our heads , literally or figuratively, because we choose to be our best selves? Will we love those who hurt us?

Tomorrow, we in the United Stated, have a holiday honoring the memory and legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is a modern day example of someone who lived his best self and was murdered because of it.

How should we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr?

Follow Jesus! That means love everyone, including those who hurt you! Be love!


Reach Out in Love!

Break What Separates Us!

“Between us and you a great chasm has been fixed.”
Luke 16:26

Jesus reminds us that we have a choice to make. We have the Rich Man, who though was not an evil person, he just did not pay attention to Lazarus, the Poor Man. Lazarus was in need of kindness, but the Rich Man did not reach out to him, and we see in the Parable, this was a terrible thing not to do. It has eternal results!

Jesus challenges us! Do we ignore the Lazarus individuals in our lives, or do we break the separation that divides us?

If we want to follow Jesus, we do not have a choice, we must break the chasm!

Today is a new day! See those in need and bridge the gap that separates ourselves for each other!

Follow Jesus!
