Burger King has a saying they use in advertising: “Do it your way!” Today’s reading is about what we find in the world’s values, based on what each person selfishly wants, forgetting about what’s good for the community.
The holy office of being a priest was offered for sale as Micah (not the prophet) hired a priest for his benefit alone. How’s that for being self-centered! Micah’s only concern was for his own well being with the idea that he could own a priest.
Because we live in Christ, we share in his holy priesthood. We are all priests, not for ourselves alone, or for the selfish benefit of a few, but for the world which hungers for love and God’s saving grace in Jesus. Let’s change the name from “Burger King” to “Priestly King,” altering, “Do it your way” to “Do it Jesus’ way.”
