LET GO OF YOUR PRIDE
Memorial of Saint Vincent De Paul, Priest
27th September 2021 Luke 9:46-50
“Anargument started between them about which of them was the greatest …… ” Because of our pride we think we are greater and better and more important than others.
This attitude causes jealousy and envy. Jealousy and envy only reveal that we have yet to die to self. The proud and arrogant cannot walk in love, because they are selfish.
Think of yourself less, think about others also. Don’t be too self-absorbed. A blessed life is only attained by overcoming selfishness and cultivating compassion.
Dear Jesus, help me not to look out for my personal interests, but also the interests of others. Give me a heart position of humility and service. Amen.
Rev. Fr. Alexander Mwebembezi
