This morning, I was with my mom’s group at my church for our usual session. Today was about the Catholic Social Teaching through the Symbolon dvd.
Serving others is a key characteristic as Christians to being a disciple. Jesus served us and he asked others especially his disciples at the last supper to serve too. We are disciples of Jesus too. We are to love one another as Christ loved us. Our purpose in life on this earth is to live in love and think about love. The social teaching starts with a person’s life as an individual to try and act like the Church. We are to put other people first besides God. This is living the teaching out. You can even start this just as simple as at home with your spouse, your children. In this modern world, we are also living in a another poverty called poverty of love. We are in need to be loved and served. We don’t need to stress about doing several people at one time. We can do this with just one person. The person nearest to us. I can serve my husband and my sons. I can serve to my friends. I can serve to my parents and brothers. I can serve to my in-laws. Serving them is washing their feet and giving them love. There is more to this world than money, property and etc. Everyone is our neighbor. We are to love them as we love ourselves. We are to serve them unto Jesus.
