Are you kidding me? Seriously, dude! James and John how can you be so full of yourselves, to want to place yourselves above your fellow disciples, and then think you are worthy of being equal with Jesus in the sacrifice He will endure. You guys did not think this through! Wow, how many of us have made choices without first thinking about the cost of what we were actually asking for first? Today’s gospel teaching us that big time.
Pondering these thoughts today: I’m not saying we shouldn’t and won’t suffer; on the contrary, as a true believer we will indeed have times on our journey where suffering will be a huge part of our experience. My reflection today is about the way James and John seemed to demand equality in the kingdom with Jesus. Yes, we are to follow Jesus, but no, we are not equal to Him; meaning that we do not sit to the right and left of Jesus in His kingdom.
LOVE YOU GUYS !!!!
Your brother in Christ Jesus
