When You Feel Inadequate, Do This | #844

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 25th Sunday (B) In what way is Jesus like a child? I submit to you that Jesus is totally dependent on his Heavenly Father. How do you respond when you feel inadequate? Accept the fact that you are totally dependent on your Heavenly Father. Do your best, and God will do the rest.

Going Deeper: We often refuse to acknowledge feelings of inadequacy. Instead we deflect, make excuses, blame others, or distract ourselves. Notice your behavior next time. Sometimes we have to start by noticing others’ behavior before we can be honest about ours.
