(A journey through Verses from the Bible – with practical applications – to Love Jesus & Live Jesus!)
DAY 10: SEEKING GOD’S WILL ALWAYS & LIVING IN HUMILITY
(Lk 1:38) “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to Your Word!”
CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE VERSE
Receiving the Word of God, Mamma Mary bows Her head in humble submission to the Will of God, as She teaches all humanity…
… to give highest priority in doing the Will of God
… to clothe oneself with the virtue of humility to allow God to work wonders in life
WHAT IS CHRIST SPEAKING TO ME, THROUGH THIS BIBLE VERSE?
Seek the Will of God in everything that you do in life
Be daring to practise the virtue of humility, as St Augustine reminds us: “Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.”
HOW CAN I CELEBRATE CHRIST, THIS CHRISTMAS?
- Before entering into any venture/work, make it a habit to ask: “What is God’s Will for me?”
- Practise 3 simple acts of humility today
Lord Jesus, thank you for the gift of Mamma Mary, who is an example to always seek Your Will in our lives, and is an inspiration to live in humility, Amen!
Let us celebrate Christ, this Christmas, and live like Him!
God Bless! Live Jesus!
