Reflections for November 2, 2014

 

Matthew 23:1–12

Along the journey of faith, we seek guidance and look for models of holy living. We look to leaders in our faith communities to provide such guidance – and we are leaders ourselves. In this week’s focus scripture, Jesus tells his disciples and the crowds around him to be discerning in whom they follow. Our leaders should be humble. They should live authentically and practice what they preach. We should look for the qualities of “servant leadership” in others – people who are willing to serve and care for others without seeking attention or striving for fame along the way. Jesus says, “The greatest among you will be a servant. People who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted.”

 

This week, help another person anonymously – don’t let others know about your good deed or gift.
