“Rock My World” Quote

17 08 2010

So I was grocery shopping in Kroger today and just happened upon the book section.  (This is rare occasion, as I am a coupon fanatic, and shop strictly by a grocery list.)  Anyhow, there was one particular book that caught my attention, so I picked it up to thumb through it, and my world was rocked when I read the quote on the back cover:

“What you are doing I cannot do, what I’m doing you cannot do, but together we are doing something beautiful for God, and this is the greatness of God’s love for us – to give us the opportunity to become holy through the works of love that we do, because holiness is not the luxury of the few.  It is a very simple duty for you, for me, you in your position, in your work, and I and others, each one of us in the work, in the life that we have given our word of honor to God….You must put your love for God in a living action.”

Mother Teresa

I started to tear up in the grocery store thinking of how greatly privileged I am to be love in action.  I am so grateful for the many fellow believers who have partnered with us on this journey of love.  Together we are doing something beautiful for God.
