Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in humility before God:
“‘I baptize with water,’ John replied, ‘but among you stands one you do not know. He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.’”
Count me in there with John, Jesus.
I’m not worthy to perform even the most menial task for You.
That’s not me being modest.
That’s a fact.
The problem is…
I keep forgetting that
That’s why, when things don’t go the way I want them to, I cry out in baffled anguish –
“What did I do to deserve this?!”
If I got what I deserved
You’d squash me like a bug.
Instead, You treat me with inexplicable
On those occasions when I’m called on to
inconvenience myself for others
sacrifice myself for You
I’m still being treated infinitely better
than I deserve.
