Devotions based on Mother Teresa/No Greater Love
It has been very convicting to read Mother Teresa’s thoughts on love as it shows me my “anemic” love for the Lord. I pray she inspires you as she does me to open myself more to His love and to show that love to others.
She says for us not to think that love has to be extraordinary to be genuine. Often it is just the small things of daily life: faithfulness, small words of kindness, a thought for others, our way of being silent, of looking, of speaking, and of acting. Isn’t it wonderful that He uses us to be His love and compassion in the world in spite of our weaknesses and frailties?
It is the intensity of love we put in to our gestures that makes them beautiful for God. Let us conquer the world with our love. That means starting at home within our families. Fro there, love spreads toward whoever may need us.
“IT does not matter how much we give, but how much love we put into our giving.” Even when we cannot give much, we can always give joy that springs from a heart that is in love with God. The best way to show our gratitude to God and people is to accept everything with joy. “A joyful heart is a normal result of a heart burning with love. “
