Reflections Along the Jesus Way

November 12, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

 If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. Issac Newton, 1676

Hearing or observing someone giving credit to those who helped him/her in the past (or even the present!) is an incredibly beautiful and gratifying experience.

I am forever grateful for the sacrifices made on my behalf, starting with parents and grandparents, who gave so much.  Simply being able to know I stand on the shoulders of many, in so many ways, is one of the enormous blessings for which I give thanks.  As Christ-followers, the Cross of Christ represents the ultimate sense in which we stand on anyone’s shoulders.  On his Cross Jesus was literally lifted up from the earth and in so doing drew us all to the Father’s love and grace (John 12:32).”
