This homily is based on Matthew 11:25-30.
The words of our Lord today is a loud and clear invitation to me:
“Dethrone yourself!” he tells me.
It’s a tough invitation. It’s simply against our DNA to “dethrone ourselves.” We all have a need for honor and social approval. The only problem is, sometimes we get carried away, and honor and social approval become addictive drugs, and before we know it, we find in ourselves a black hole for affirmation and approval.
