Week June 19
“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23
We are not very good at “denying ourselves” in our society. Our current economic situation is evidence of what happens when people think they can have everything they want. Jesus calls us to Stewardship where we set our own personal “wants” aside so that we have the resources to follow Him instead.
That we as Christian Stewards learn to deny our own wants a little more so that we can more fully follow Our Lord’s example of giving and service to others.
