It’s not a wonder we battle the injustices of the world. Rarely do we take the time to slow down and ask ourselves how well do we love. When I did, I learned that I really didn’t know what love was.
Sure I knew the worldly definition of love. But without the presence of the Divine, I was unable to share my gifts in a healthy and authentic way. I was too tied to my own attachments, unable to bear witness as my authentic self.
By listening to God, I have a deepening awareness of my oneness with all, my connection to all and the ability to participate in God’s caring love for all. Without God, it’s too easy to be attached to my agenda and wants, however “good” I might think they might be. With God, I allow love and light to flow through me.
The only way I know how to love God is to love what God loves; only then do we love with divine love and allow it to flow through us.Richard Rohr
Lord, I invite Your Divine love to flow through me today allowing me to love well.
