Look harder

"But Herod said, 'John I beheaded. Who then is this about whom I hear such things?' And he kept trying to see him."
Luke 9:9

And the same could honestly be said about us...we keep trying to see Jesus. We are either looking in the wrong places or we are missing the obvious. Where are we looking? Are we walking right past Jesus, looking for him only in church when he is actually on a street corner? Herod was the king, if he wanted to really see Jesus, he could have sent for Jesus. I don't think he wanted to see him that badly. Do we want to see Jesus that badly? Mother Teresa used to say that she didn't need to preach about Jesus to the poor she served, because the poor she served WERE Jesus. Jesus is in the most difficult people and in the most unlikely places. If we are looking for him only in church we are like Herod, not looking all that hard. Where is Jesus in our day, today? Love, heidi
