Let her keep it for the day of my burial
As Holy Week fast approaches, the Lord Jesus looks ahead to the fulfillment of his mission. But he knows it means much suffering and death and so he prepares himself for it. Can we be like Jesus in facing our own crosses? They can be heavy to lift and full of pain. Still, the Lord sets an example for us. Do not be afraid of the cross. Instead prepare for it with courage and love.
Lord, please help us to always be prepared to suffer for the sake of love.
