Example is more powerful than words

0

The first requirement for carrying the message that there is a better way of life is that we have received the message ourselves and received it in its entirety, not merely this or that piece of it. There are many ways of carrying the message. Sharing our experience, strength and hopes is a carrying of the message. Outreach to others needs to be done with prudence, generally when the person involved wants the outreach. Many people will not respond. Even then by reaching out to others we can rise above our own narrow concerns and practice gratitude for our own spiritual healing and liberation.

Example is more powerful than words. We can practice what we have learned in all our activities: by taking life as it is and finding opportunities in our difficulties; by improving in our ability to let go and trust in God; by being patient with ourselves and others; and by keeping our relationships in good repair.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, I believe that what you have begun in me, you will bring to a successful conclusion. Show me how to put into practice all that you have taught me and make me a messenger of your love.
