Church leaders in the past were powerful & most respected of all leaders. Jesus made this accussations because the leaders hungered for more power, money & status thus losing sight of God . And this may happen to us lay people too!When our wants and ambition occupies our mind. Getting into the rat race may seem exciting initially but eventually makes you wearisome, wasted and sad. There you find all these tips & ideas on “Happiness Project” but still do not satisfy.
Come back to him. Return your gaze upon him and never lose sight. He is the way, the truth and the life. For only through him we find true peace & joy which the world cannot give.
Mama Mary, help me not to be blinded of what the world dictates. Help me to see and listen through God’s word. That i may not lose sight of God.
