prayer diary Thursday 24 August 2017 (St Bartholomew)

'For which is the greater, one who sits at table, or one who serves? Is it not the one who sits at table? But I am among you as one who serves.' 
Luke 22.27

The world sees success as the gathering together of many possessions; but all these mean nothing if at death you are without treasure in heaven. St Bartholomew left everything to follow Christ, giving up even life itself for his sake. And yet he died a richer man than many kings. And so may we, if only we follow his example.
