Beyond The Surface

Reflections for contemplative living

Recently, when I was talking with a friend and asked how she would like to grow in her spiritual life this year, she answered that she would like to see more fruits of the spirit in her life, like patience. We find growth in our spiritual life through the fruits that we produce.

Deep interior silence allows us to relate to others beyond the superficial aspects of social status, race, nationality, religion, and personal characteristics.

Do you have more peace, humility, and charity in your daily life? Where do you notice more love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, or self-control?

Thank you, God, for drawing me beyond the superficial and learning to live deeply in Your love.
