Jesus is a sign of contradiction


"and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted; (and you yourself a sword will pierce)* so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”  (Luke 2: 34 - 35)

Simeon foretells that Jesus would be a sign of contradiction.  Why should I be a people pleaser?  Most Holy Spirit, I surrender my heart, mind, will, body, time, talent, treasure, weakness to you.  Lead me, guide me and transform me into the image of Jesus.  Thank you, O Lord.
