THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

LIFE IS A PILGRIMAGE

by: Randall Butisingh

Our life is a journey, a pilgrimage. This earth is no abiding place We cannot build a permanent home upon it; all with Time will deteriorate, disintegrate and crumble in the dust – even our own bodies. Our true home is eternal, as we are spirit and not flesh and blood. So as we journey in Time, let us choose the narrow path, with its thorns, and not the wide easy path which will lead to destruction. And with each thorn-prick, let us remember the “crown of thorns” that our Lord wore at His crucifiction where He died for the sins of all mankind, and be happy that we are sharing in His suffering. No cross, no crown!

“Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No! there’s a cross for everyone,
And there’s a cross for me”.

Here is what a Hindu said of Jesus:

No one can escape suffering. Even Jesus suffered. Although He didn’t have to endure a disease, He suffered. greatly on the cross because He took on his own body the sins or karma of others.
