February 14 - St. Cyril and St. Methodius
Jesus said to his disciples: "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me' (Matthew 25: 31-36).
Have you ever fed the hungry or cared for the sick? Christ tells us straight out that this is what we need to do if we want to accompany him in Heaven.
Lord God, strengthen my will so I don’t give in to excuses but follow through with diligence.
Impact Sports: Are my phrases: “I could” and “I would like to” or “I can” and “I will”?
Impact Life: Am I constantly reminding myself that I either use my will to conquer my feelings or I will become a slave to them?
