Our Real Job

Christ-like transformation is not concerned with acquiring more but in letting go of more, and becoming more present to those with less. The best way you can show your love of God is to be merciful to others. Every act of mercy and kindness brings us closer to the reality of God. Growing closer to God is our real job in life. We need to open our eyes and see the many blessings God has given us and then we must share them freely with others. Do not be afraid of enjoying the full freedom of giving your life away. In Seeds of Contemplation, Thomas Merton reminds us: “We do not detach ourselves from things in order to attach ourselves to God, but rather we become detached from ourselves in order to see and use all things in and for God.”
