Today's Gospel reading from Luke 6 - the Sermon on the Plain - is filled with things to meditate on. I'd like to concentrate on one sentence, though.
Jesus said, "No disciple is superior to the teacher; but when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher."
To be a disciple is to be a student. We learn from Christ. We allow Him to train us. As we advance in our Christian walk - our training - are we becoming more like the teacher? This must be our goal, to become more Christ-like. If you're anything like me, you'll admit you have a long way to go. Let us continue to be formed more and more into the image of Christ.
Father, keep us diligent in our training, in our discipleship. Help us to be more like Jesus every day. Amen.
