Patient?

Monday 22 February

To be like Jesus?

A remarkable insight by Robin Gamble in his book ‘Jesus the Evangelist’ is that Jesus was patient in how he valued the unique individual before him.

The unloved or unsuccessful were no different from the holy, the loved or the brilliant. He looked and loved and gave his time and attention.

And you….?

Competing.

This is not a specifically Christian comment, but something of a spiritual norm that is confirmed by my own faith.

The drives in life which make us need more or try and achieve the greatest goal can never be a resurrection goal. 

“Life in its fullness is found in the quiet realisation of the blessings of today and not the promise of tomorrow. The most content (and holy) I have ever met are most often those who relish the moment and the interactions of the day. Those in front of you become the most beautiful and successful by their being there and not because of their achievements.

See Jesus and the lilies etc. 

Just be one of the Easter people.
