“And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the leaders of the people sought to destroy him; but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people hung upon his words, listening.” (Lk 19: 47-48)
What is one to do, if he or she is not blessed with good leaders; with leaders who seek to “destroy” Christ rather than to follow and serve Him? One does as did the people mentioned in the passage above, from our Church’s reading for today: They “hung upon” the Lord’s words, “listening.” That’s all I’ve got, concerning today’s reading. Lord, help me to listen more, to You, and to see it as an opportunity to “hang upon” Your words more, if ever I am subjected to poor human leadership.
