When I was younger I thought life was all about what I would achieve and who I would become in the future but as I got older I realised that life is about holiness. Many people would never describe themselves as holy but it has a few different expressions. Another way of thinking about holiness is being all that God created us to be and not necessarily what we achieve or who we become even though holiness might express itself through these things.
Our human thinking says that our effort is most important. However, Lent points out to us as we prepare to meet Jesus at Easter, that we need God in our everyday life because no matter how hard we try God will always make us a better version of who we can be.
Our effort is not as important as our surrender.
ACTION: How have your priorities changed over the years? What is truly important to you now?
GOSPEL READING: Matthew 25:31-46
