Principal Weekly Letter
Message from the Principal - October 16, 2019
Sunday’s Gospel has this verse, “No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other.” (Luke 16:13a)
I apply this verse by envisioning one side of my heart labeled “Jesus” and the other side labeled “Self.” Practically speaking, Self is master when—instead of allowing God to direct a choice—I permit some person, object or activity to do so. In that situation, the person, object or activity is functioning as an idol for me. When I am pushing my own agenda, my choices revolve around the idols. Self is in charge. God is left out of the picture.
The God who calls me to holiness bends over backwards to help me to think of others instead of myself.
