Mommy Mantra July 15, 2014 MT 11:20-24
Jesus is rebuking the towns of Galilee where he preached and did great deeds and those towns did the so what shrug.
I am sharing what a friend has posted about her experiences of today and I wonder if Jesus wasn’t thinking exactly the same thing when he confront the people of Galilee:
I am so annoyed with everything today. Stupid government websites and error codes; stupid people doing yard work with the most noisy machines possible while (my child) is napping; irritating statements being made by numerous individuals. Can I have a reset button please?
Was Jesus standing in the road pulling his hair out muttering to himself: “Why don’t they get it!”
How many times have we done that? Stood in our kitchens so frustrated at what is going on in our lives that we want to push the rest button.
But maybe that is what Jesus is asking us to do, push the reset button.
Let’s take the day and look at all the blessings we have gotten. All the answered prayers. All the situations changed, and stay with that for a moment. It will help us all feel better.
It will also awake us to what Jesus has done for us and how much more work there is yet to do to help Jesus in his mission.
