He has filled he hungry
He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. —Luke 1:52–53
The church does not exist because we choose to form it. It exists because the Holy Spirit makes it, acting with a will independent of our own. For this reason there is no way for us to predict when, where, or how the Holy Spirit may act. —Andreas Andreopoulos, This is My Beloved Son
Prayer of the Day
Lord Jesus, I take comfort in the idea that someone may be as guilty as I am, or (better yet) guiltier. I'm sorry for this, Jesus. Help me to hold myself to the standards you have set for me, and not to look at someone else's sin as a means of justifying myself. Amen.
