May Our Hearts Belong To God!

A Divided Heart Has No Peace!

No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Luke 16: 13

Simply said, surrendering our will to the Divine Will brings peace to our lives. But this is not as easy as it sounds. There are things in our world that challenges us and distract us from peace.

Perhaps the only way to maintain our will in the Divine Will is to be vigilant in love.

Give as much of our hearts to God as we can!

We are God’s work in process. It may be discouraging as we examine our hearts, and see how we fail to live up to our principles. However, efforts matter! Forgiveness is real! And today is another day to give ourselves to God by serving God in the world; serving God by loving all meet!

Never give up on serving the Lord; the Lord will never give up on us!



Be Jesus, Serve Jesus!

Be a Neighbor of Jesus!

(Jesus said) “Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “the one who showed mercy on him.” And Jesus said to him, ”Go and do likewise.”
Luke 10: 36-37

Jesus is very demanding! He has no time for fake religious observance. In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, He tells us that we must love individuals in need. Life can be cruel! We may not be able to change that reality, but regardless of who the person who suffers, we must be Jesus to them.

St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.”

Mother Teresa’s words are not “Pie in the sky” religion, rather, this is how she lived and challenges us to do the same!

Who do we need to be the Good Samaritan to today?
