Building on a Firm Foundation, Tuesday Evening Revisited

“Your Kingdom come on earth as in heaven.”

How often we seek ourselves: our own name, our own fame, our own pleasure, our own benefit, our own advancement, our own happiness.  Not all of it is done to the exclusion of other people receiving the same.  But for all of the self-seeking that we do, our Lord teaches us to pray for His Kingdom to come.  Not our own.  In Luke 17:10 Jesus says, “…when you are done all you were ordered to do, say, ‘We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done.’”  Jesus’ teaching flies in the face of feelings of entitlement, or of earning our worth.

These evening, we might reflect on how we live: how do our lives advance God’s Kingdom on earth?
