Lifted Up by Humility

Blessed Thursday!

Readings:
Acts 13:13-25
Psalm 89: 2-32, 21-22, 25, 27,
+John 13:16-20

King Saul prepared the way for King David–
most unwillingly!
The lesser gave way to the greater,
but only when forced to do so.
Saul’s pride
is his shame.

David prepared the way for Jesus,
One greater still.
So did St. John the Baptist.
Their glory
is in their humility.

The one who elevates
one greater than himself,
will in that very act
himself be lifted up.
