UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:

People crave recognition and status but are never satisfied and always want more. How does one find true fulfillment in relationship to others? Jesus taught that demonstrating humility and extending unselfish hospitality bring fulfillment in this life and in the life to come.

 

CONCLUDING REFLECTION:

On a regular basis, believers are faced with two choices—one which has a negative consequence and the other a positive benefit. Before acting, it is helpful to review the choices before us and to reflect upon these in light of the Gospel. It is easy for our actions to be determined by the mores of the dominant culture. In the eyes of Jesus, whoever promotes oneself or acts in expectation of repayment from others in a quid pro quo arrangement is far from living out the values of the kingdom.

 PRAYER:

Dear God, Teach us the power of humility, and help us not to seek for the vainglory of the world. Teach us how to be the people you have called us to be, and may we find comfort and assurance in living the identity of those who have been called to follow you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
