St Paul’s gives many examples of his sacrifices, reminding us that the Lord may give us trails and tests to see what we are prepared to do for him. (2 Corinthians 11:18-30, Friday 11th Week in Ordinary Time) It may even seem unfair and at times a little foolish, but like St Paul it doesn’t necessarily have to make sense, if we are making our sacrifices for the Lord.
The question for each person as they discern their vocation is: What am I prepared to do for the Lord? Am I prepared to give up everything! Am I prepared to make big sacrifices and finally how far am I prepared to go!
Thank you St Paul for your wonderful example.
Kind regards and God bless
