Recognizing the Sacred

At one point in the Christian Scriptures, Jesus asks his friends, “Who do you say that I am?”  Some interpret this question as Jesus wanting to be sure they know he is the Messiah.  Yet I doubt Jesus was seeking status recognition.  Instead perhaps, in his humanity, he was longing to be seen and really known.  Or maybe, in his divinity, he was curious if they were ready to recognize the Sacred dwelling among them and within them.  

Merging the human and the divine, we can ask this question of ourselves today:  Do we see and really know one another’s sacredness?

May you be inspired!
