  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 8:1-3)
Everyone’s privilege as children of God and disciples of Jesus is to serve as Jesus served among humility, unselfish love, kindness, joy, and a willingness to do anything God asks of us. God, in his turn, gives us each good gift and grace we need to carry out the task and assignment. God in his immeasurable power needs no one, but in his wisdom and love, he chooses to assign his work through each one of us. In our fallen condition, our natural inclination is to want to be served and placed first and to avoid giving besides ourselves to the service of others. And besides, who actually prefers to take the humble place of a servant who puts the needs of others before their individual needs? Jesus is our best model who "came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a gift" for us. The gospel respects these women who imitated Jesus in his unselfish sacrificial love and modest service. His Holy Spirit provides us with all that we want to love and serve others. No one is insignificant or unnecessary in God's wealth. The least in his kingdom discover a home and a mission at Jesus' region. Are we further like the status-conscious apostles who were worried for their place, or like the women who were happy to serve Jesus silently and liberally with their personal resources?
