Wednesday, second week of Lent
Jeremiah 18:18-20 (Jeremiah has prayed for his persecutors)
Psalm 31:5-6, 14-16 “Save me, O Lord, in Your steadfast love”
+Matthew 20:17-28 (the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve)
who has authority
is called upon
on the behalf
of those he serves,
although they plot
to take his life.
Do I follow Jesus’ example of asking God to forgive those who attack me for trying to serve them?
