Ordinary Saints

Kelly Cutbirth reflects on what makes a saint and what is the work of an ordinary saint [Luke 6:20-31].

Reflection

  • Think of an achievement, success or possession in your life right now that you’re afraid to lose. Can you imagine God’s love for you even without that thing?
  • Reflect on a part of yourself that you’ve made an enemy. What would it look like to practice love for that part of yourself?

Spiritual Practice

  • Practice belief in your inherent worth.  Think of something you’re afraid to lose: an achievement, approval, possession, loved one.  Take time to wonder what deeper value you’ve attached to that thing (love, belonging, worth).  Receive the reminder that you are inherently and unconditionally worthy.
