“They will condemn the Son of Man to death.”

Matthew 20:17-28

Sometimes we can get carried away with our work, routines, and plans until we lose sight of Jesus and become unaware of his presence within us. When we are selfish and take things and people for granted, it is like we are persecuting Jesus through our actions.

Also, when we fail to practice love and compassion very quickly, we may find ourselves on a different path from that of Jesus.

However, in prayer, we can ask Jesus to help us be more faithful to him, following in his footsteps of loving our brothers and sisters to the very end in the good and bad times. Are we willing to stand up and speak for Jesus? How do we persecute Jesus in our words and actions?
