Mother Teresa: true holiness

May 16, 2009
    Commemoration of Caroline Chisholm, Social Reformer, 1877

    We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
    -- Romans 12:6-8 (NIV)

    Make sure that you let God’s grace work in your souls by accepting whatever He gives you, and giving Him whatever He takes from you. True holiness consists in doing God’s work with a smile.
    ... Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997) (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me cheerfulness in in Your service.
