For the Love of God

…That having resolved to make the love of God the end of all his actions, he had found reasons to be well satisfied with his method.” – Brother Lawrence

If only we would make the love of God, the end of all our actions. Our lives are meant to revolve around Jesus. If you wash the dishes, do it out of love for Him. If you pick up trash off of the ground, do it out of love for Him. If you sleep, do it out of love for Him. None of us can claim that we have loved God perfectly, as He loves us. Fortunately, this moment is a new moment. God is always waiting for us to direct our attention to Him, as His attention is always on us.

Today, let’s begin to devote our every action to God. We must ask Him for His help in making Him the end of all our actions. We can’t do it, but His Spirit is faithful to remind us of Him when we forget.
