THIS WEEK'S REFLECTION
 What's in it for me?

It is very difficult for us to be totally selfless.   We are innately self centered. Subconsciously, at least, we are always asking: "What's in it for me?" Religious decisions are no exception.   If we deliberately choose to become disciples of Jesus, we, too, like James and John, might ask: "What reward do you promise? Will we become powerful and famous?  Can we sit at your right hand?"
Jesus doesn't play those kinds of games.   He makes it very clear that, if we choose to follow Him, we are asking to become suffering servants.
