In the Philippines, the next three days are holidays so it is a good time for me to meditate about what he did. I ask myself, how can I complain or drag my feet when I have to serve or do things I would rather not do, when Jesus himself gave me this amazing example of service and humility?
Today we will be celebrating the Christian Seder meal, somewhat like the Jews celebrate their Passover. Have you ever celebrated the Seder meal? It is a wonderful ceremony for Christians to celebrate Maundy Thursday meaningfully as a family. It makes the story of the Israelites, our story too.
