St. Irenaeus of Lyons
"Remember this you who never think of God." Today's psalm gives us a harsh rebuke against hypocrisy. God wants more than lip-service. He wants us to act like he is on our minds all the time.
One more thing: Jesus saw the crowd and wanted to go to the other shore. I wonder why? Do you think perhaps he was trying to get away from the people who were only there for the curiosity show? Was he trying to find his true followers; those who would leave their mother and father and the comforts of home to be with him? Was he trying to find those who would do more than just profess with their mouth and live out his commands?
Prayer: Father in heaven, help me to think of you always, even when I am tempted to rely on myself. Be with me when I am mothering my children and help me to make act like I am your child and a follower of Christ. In his holy name I pray, Amen. St. Irenaeus, pray for me.
