Thought: “He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.” - Lao Tzu
If we are asked to just be ourselves we might find the idea quite challenging. Who am I? In fact, how do I even begin to answer such a question?
Yet, God is constantly seeking ways of reminding us that we are, without any effort on our part, precious and great in His eyes. At the heart of every one of us the same God lives. To seek to be ourselves is to allow God to shine through us and to be present in the everyday, ‘ordinary’ events of our lives.
Blessed are You, Father,
Lord of Heaven and earth,
for revealing the mysteries of the kingdom to mere children.
