Who, Me?

Posted: March 9th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: My Thoughts, Spirituality | 6 Comments »

I love the disciples.  At times, they remind me of me, especially when Jesus gets done teaching, and they are still lost, and He has to explain it to them.  I think they got it right near the end though.

I was reading today in Matthew 26, the last supper, and noticed something.  Jesus tells the twelve that one of them will betray him, and instead of pointing fingers at who they thought may be the weakest of them, they all asked, “Who, me?”

Wow, if I could only get that one right in my life, and teach it to my kids.

God, when things go wrong, help me to see my own weakness, and the fault in me, and not to point my finger and judge other first.

Here is the text:

“When evening had come, He sat down with the twelve.  Now as they were eating, He said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.’ And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to Him, ‘Lord, is it I?’”

    Good post, Moon. We do need to emulate the disciples humility. They got it (His message) enough to know they were capable of such a crime. Hmm.

    Yep !!!! For sure and Amen – We need to be looking at our own lives and our own ways and asking the same Question – “Is it I ???” Great point (ing) lol ;)

    Great point, message delivered. While we examine ourselves and searching our own hearts, it shows just how much we don’t know ourselves. The only person at that table that knew the answer was our Lord. Reason we cannot solve our own problems effectively without his guidance. I know there’s times I like to think I can solve a certain issue in my life and I should be asking God, who, me?

    Again, great post. Thanks Chris.
