“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Mat 10:37-40).
As we remember Jesus’ cross, let us find grace to carry our own. Remembering that the end of the cross is not the grave but the sky. Be sober today and keep the “main thing” the main thing.
