Daily Thought For May 10, 2019
Prayer of a Faithful Servant
There are around me many that I love deeply, and I have a task to fulfill in relationship to them. Many of them do not know God or know him only imperfectly. It is not in arguing or lecturing that I can make them know who God is for us. But in struggling with myself, in becoming with his help more Christian and more courageous, I will witness to him whose disciple I am. By the serenity and strength that I intend to acquire I will show that Christian life is great and beautiful and full of joy. By cultivating the best qualities of my mind I will proclaim that God is the highest intelligence, and that those who serve him can draw without end from that blessed source of intellectual and moral light. In order to give, one must receive; to serve my brothers and sisters before God for one day, or for even a small part of one, I must first purify and strengthen myself for many days.
