We will never give God the best of ourselves if it is not through a divine
gift called “excellence”.
EXCELLENCE,according to the RAE (Royal Academy of the
Spanish Language) is something or someone of superior quality or goodness that
makes it worthy of singular appreciation and esteem. We find several verses
that tell us that there is only one righteous and this is Christ, therefore we
cannot pretend to believe that we are excellent in everything we do, we simply
do the best we can. Another measure in which we usually make a big mistake is
to consider that the quality of our work should be equally imitated by all (if
we believe that we are worthy of such a high distinction). Therefore, this will
cause in us frustration and obviously conflict with the people around us
because each human being is a world apart and although God treats his Church in
a general way, when dealing with the human being, he is very specific. When
Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem triumphantly, all the people around him set
their hearts on him and gave him the best that each one had.
"And they brought the colt to Jesus, and
threw his cloaks on it, and he sat on it."
Mark 11. 7
For city dwellers, I would like to comment that
equestrian animals smell bad when they sweat, can we imagine what that smell
will be like in these animals in the middle of the desert? The donkey on which
Jesus of Nazareth would ride would be no exception. So the disciples gave him
the best saddle they had their own coats. In the same way, the people around
them, they wanted to praise those who they considered that, humanly, it would
be their new king of Israel who would evict the Romans from his lands.
Therefore, with high expectations, they gave the best of themselves, although
eight days later, they will condemn the Son of God.
"Many also spread their cloaks on the
road, and others cut branches from the trees, and spread them on the
Mark 11. 8
Today we would talk about the red carpet being
extended to Jesus Christ. And it is that when we have the opportunity to try,
see and have a life close to Christ, we lack details to thank him for all that he
has done and for all that he is going to do in our future. A life completely
dedicated to him is the least we usually do at best. In other cases, we may
give part of our time from time to time. I am not here to decide how much we
have to dedicate or do, but whatever we do, we have to give the best of each
one of us, because at the end of the day, we are giving God the service that he
God bless you.
