Sponsored by www.linkedin.com/in/jimdascenzo/ Mk 2:13-17 Jesus went out along the sea...he saw Levi...Jesus said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed Jesus. While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and his disciples; Some scribes said, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" Jesus heard this and said to them, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners."
It's so easy to focus on how fabulous our lives have been after we lose something precious, isn't it?
A job. A home. A loyal companion. A parent. God forbid, a child.
We humans always tend to ask the Big Guy that same question in the face of despair...WHY ME?
We sorta self-focused like dat. All of us. No exceptions.
And by the by, no judgment from PK. We are all hurting after we suddenly no longer have that very special someone (homo sapien or animal, yo) or something that we, for so very long before-hand, took for granted.
HEAVY, HEAVY SIGH.
So, just for today, while things are quite fabulous, why don't we ask ourselves WHY NOT ME? At least for this moment in time; we are celebrating Christmas, a wedding, and winning the lottery all at once, you dig?
The concept begs the question: are we squandering away our blessings EVERY SINGLE DAY just because there's nothing wrong? Let the answer really sink in.
And instead of questioning why we're so fortunate; let's just be very, very grateful for every moment of the fabulous lives we're so darned lucky to have, Capisce? This means you, PK.
