12th January 2019 Saturday – Friday after Epiphany
1 John 5:14-21, John 3:22-30
John the Baptist’s disciples perhaps felt threatened by Jesus’ popularity and started feeling the need to compare Jesus with their Master. However, John the Baptist was confident as to who he was and he knew the task that he had to do. Instead of seeing Jesus as a threat, he rejoiced in Jesus’ presence.
Let us learn to recognise that each of us is a unique person with our own sets of gifts as well as limitations, strengths as well as weaknesses. In prayer today, let us ask Jesus to remove any hurts, jealousy or fears that prevents us from being who we are.
Question for reﬂection:
1) How can I be more positive with myself and others today?
