Devotions from Mother Teresa/No Greater Love

How do we work and keep our attention fully on the Lord?  It seems impossible but the important thing is that our it is our intention and the desire of our heart that our work be done with Jesus and for Him.  It is what He wants…our will and desire to be for Him!

When we think of electricity, we are like the wires and He is the current. We have the power to let the current pass through us, use us, to produce the light for the world.  Or we can refuse to be used and allow the darkness to spread.

Sometimes what we do for others may seem insignificant but everything we do is important to God.  God won’t ask how many books we read or how many sermons we preached, but if we have done our best for the love of Him..

“Unless our work is interwoven with love it is useless. To work without love is slavery.” No matter how small or insignificant our work may be, let us make it Christ’s love in action. The fruit of love is service. Love leads us to say, “I want to serve”.  Let’s not forget that as we serve the poor around us we are doing something beautiful for God.
