Mother Teresa: making service acceptable

Tuesday, November 28, 2017
    All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. Those who have believing masters are not to show less respect for them because they are brothers. Instead, they are to serve them even better, because those who benefit from their service are believers, and dear to them. These are the things you are to teach and urge on them.
    —1 Timothy 6:1-2 (NIV)
    Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christ-like, for his heart was meek and he always thought of others. Our vocation, to be beautiful, must be full of thought for others.
    ... Mother Teresa of Calcutta (Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu) (1910-1997), quoted in Something Beautiful for God: Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Malcolm Muggeridge, London: Collins, 1971, p. 69-72 (see the book)
    See also 1 Tim. 6:1-2; Rom. 8:29; 12:3; 1 Cor. 15:49; Phil. 2:3-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, sanctify my service according to Your word.
