Most of us our limitations to back up mediocrities, foolishness and dance on the same spot. Most companies aim for the strongest, best grades, finest, talented and work espirence, but rarely have I heard of any company going after someone who knows his/her weakness and is ready to over come them. You will agree with me it's most of those whom people called "dumb/block" heads,who have excelled and invented different things in our world.
These are people whom like Mathew knew their weaknesses and were ready to work on them. Mathew the tax collector, ready to leave behind his old corrupt ways, became a great apostle of Jesus who even wrote the Gospel of the new testament. A call for us to know our weaknesses, work upon and God will take up from there.
You don't have to be worthy, but you need to be willing, remains one of the outstanding words of st Pius of Pietrelcina(Padre Pio). Though the apostles were unworthy, Jesus choose them and sent them on a mission, in to the foreign lands with no food nor money, but just a willing spirit with that willingness, though they encountered challenges and frustrations they emerged victorious. Padre Pio was unworthy, but with a willing spirit, was able to demonstrate love, charity and Jesus recognized him through stigmatisation ( bore the wounds of Jesus on his body), a gift only a few have had. We need not bear stigmas of wounds, but let our willing spirit to serve, undertake the mission of Christ to our efforts, greed and injustice, be our stigmas, now and forever.
This was on my daughters birthday and we decided to join some orphans in an orphanage and celebrate with them. Some friends and I offered them some school items and food items.
