from John 21:15-25
John ends his Gospel with this curious last sentence: “Jesus did many other things as well. If everyone of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
What is it that makes, “many other things,” possible? Work harder? Delegate more? Accomplish more? Sleepless nights? Saying, “yes,” anytime you are asked to do something? Sure, these are all possible elements to accomplishing many other things, but what if it begins by saying, “yes,” to a meal? What if it begins by saying, “yes,” to relationship with Jesus?
And what if we allow Jesus to take us deeper? What if we allow Jesus to ask more, rather than to work so hard to become what the world is suggesting we ought to be?
