Tuesday of the Second Week of Lent

1 John 4:9: This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, thank you for adopting us into your family. We can never thank you enough or ever repay you for your kindness, but please receive the service of our life as our ongoing thanksgiving for your grace and our small way of trying to share the love you have given us. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

Scripture: Matthew 23:1-12
1Then said Jesus to the crowds and to his disciples, 2"The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat; 3so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do; for they preach, but do not practice. 4They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger. 5They do all their deeds to be seen by men; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues, 7and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men. 8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant; 12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Humility is the queen or basis of all the other virtues because it enables us to see and judge properly, the way God sees. Humility helps us to be teachable so we can obtain true knowledge, wisdom, and an honest view of reality. It directs our energy, zeal, and goal to give ourselves to something greater than ourselves. Humility frees us to love and serve others unselfishly, for their sake, rather than our own. Paul the Apostle gives us the supreme example and model of humility in the person of Jesus, who emptied himself; taking the form of a servant, and ...who humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Do we want to be a servant as Jesus served and loved others? The Lord gives grace to those who humbly seek him. Loving Infant Jesus, you became a servant for our sake to set us free from the oppression of selfish pride and self-concern. Teach us to be humble as you are humble and to love others bigheartedly with selfless service and kindness.
