“His Ways Are Not Our Ways”

     In our Gospel lesson this week, Jesus’ actions confound John the Baptist to the point that John asks if Jesus is the one that he is should be looking for, or should he expect another.
It is easy to feel let down by Jesus when He does not conform to our image of Him. However, if we continue to trust in Jesus’ rule and reign over our lives despite the fact that things are not going as we may have planned, understanding that His Ways are not our ways, we find ourselves genuinely blessed.
