Matthew 10:34-11:1 (Conditions of Discipleship)
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's foes will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it. "He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. He who receives a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward." And when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.”
Here’s is something to consider: Do you plan your day around Our Lord? It is something to consider and by doing so; it shows Him that you are placing Him first in all that you plan to do with each day He has given you. Do you begin your day with prayer? Do you pray before each meal? Do you Thank Him immediately after any and all situations good or bad, what you wanted or what you didn’t regardless? Is He truly the first one you think of when you wake you? The last one on your mind as you close your eyes? If you totally 100% put Jesus first in your life all these answers would be an overwhelming YES.
Now take a look at this verse: “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.”
And His Most Blessed Mother,
