Today’s text

Matthew 10:40-42

Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.

You are more …

I am more than I think or imagine. We all are, if only we could see it.

When we do our fears vanish, and we enter every situation with the gentle confidence of one those who know … the Life and Love and Light at the core of our being, the Light, the Love and Life waiting to be released through the flesh and blood of our earthly lives.

When we know who we are the heart brims with the joyful awareness that we have what we need to face every situation with grace and strength because we bear a treasure that is always enough and which never fails.

The treasure is you.

Jesus, you are the core of each human being, the true identity of every person who walks this earth. You are the depth of our selves, and the Holy One is the core of your self.

We bear the Life and Love and Light who is God, but most of the time we are unconscious of this mystery.

We awaken to the immeasurable grace we bear when you ... who are Life and Love and Light ... shine through the eyes, the heart and hands of another.

Your presence in them awakens your Life, Love and Light in us.

As we welcome your presence in them, we awaken to life and realize who we are. Our souls brim with joyful confidence, and we become able to give what we are … to be the Light, Love and Life you are in us … so souls around us might come alive … and know.

To be a disciple is to know the treasure we bear, to return to it each day especially when fears and sorrows cause us to forget, and to open the eyes of those still asleep.

Pr. David L. Miller
