The One who loves all

Many different images run through our minds when we picture Jesus. Titles such as "King of Kings", "Prince of Peace", and "Lord of Lords" often cast Jesus in a "royal light."

 

While these titles are fitting of Jesus' character we must remember that above all Jesus was a servant. In the Gospel of St. Mark we read "For even the son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

 

Instead of putting himself above others Jesus sought to serve and help everyone he met, even those who were at the bottom of society's hierarchy.

 

From healing a blind beggar to sacrificing himself on the cross for all of humanity Jesus sought to show God's love to everyone.

 

May we all try to follow his example and show compassion and love to everyone we meet.
