Tuesday in the Twenty Second Week of Ordinary Time
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you like a thief. For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. (1 Thessalonians 5:5)
Lord God, the light we are called to follow and invite others to follow, Jesus Christ, we find and share through faith, hope and love. We try to see Him without the blinders of selfishness or the specks and planks of sin so that we can be as transparent as possible for others in knowing His light.
A military axiom states lead, follow or get out of the way. To be children of Your light, help me get out of my own way, so that I may follow You so as to lead others to You and not get in the way of Your light.
