Of the fire fighters to lose their lives in New York City on September 11, 2001, Father Mychal Judge was among the first. As NYFD Chaplain, he was known to begin each day began with, “Lord, take me where you want me to go. Let me meet who you want me to meet.” We can only presume that he recited that same prayer on that fateful morning. The Lord guided him, and Fr. Judge followed…into eternity.
Do you know any self-proclaimed perfectionists who, because of their unrealistically high standards, remain stagnant? Pride often gets in our way when we expect to be able to do things “perfectly” on our own. God doesn’t want us to do that. He wants us to seek out His help.
