"Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: 'The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord's doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes'" Matthew 21:42

As we journey along our Lenten path toward Easter, we pause for a moment for a reminder of the rejection of Jesus. Jesus told his disciples that he would be rejected, be killed and be raised from the dead. They didn't quite understand what he was talking about until it actually happened as he said it would.

The stone that was cast aside by the people he came to save, became the chief cornerstone of the foundation upon which the Church would be built. This was the Lord's doing. That same cornerstone, that one who would be rejected, is also the foundation for our lives. Are we truly building our lives on the foundation of Jesus?

Lord, you are our rock, you are our firm foundation. Keep us from building our lives on ground that is not stable, ground that is not sure, ground that will wash away when the floods of life rush our way. May we not forget that your rejection, became the means of our acceptance by the Father. For this we are eternally grateful. Amen.
