Exodus 2:1-15; Psalm 69; Matthew 11:20-24


At times, it can be relatively easy to look upon the ministry of Jesus as a success and to judge our own sharing in his ministry in those terms. It’s much harder to look upon his times of total exasperation at the fickleness of the crowd. If we seek to follow the Lord in our family life, in retirement or while working we will have to face the same frustration at times at the seeming ingratitude of others. Let us pray that we may not be ungrateful towards the goodness of others. Today in our prayer let’s use one of the “magic words”, such as “thank you”, and then let us consciously go out of our way to offer thanks today to God and to those we meet.
