we have it in our power to be in heaven with
him at this very moment. BUT being HAPPY
WITH HIM NOW means :
LOVING AS HE LOVES
HELPING AS HE HELPS
GIVING AS HE GIVES
SERVING AS HE SERVES
RECUEING AS HE RESCUES
Being with him twenty fours, touching him in his distressing disguise.
By Mother Teresa
This is one of the sayings from my sayings book that always moves me to understand how to act in life. We all do love (others, things, actions) but at our convenience as is emotionally and mentally comfortable for ourselves - thats not loving the way god loves each of us. We are loved by God despite all our shortcomings and flaws, we are accepted and loved just the way we are without stipulations or conditions and thats how we also truly love when we actually do.
The same goes for help, giving and serving another . Think about it. In such a small verse Mother Teresa has revealed a secret of the universe.
