Thought of the Day July 5, 2017

“Spiritual life demands that you never turn back or stop
going forward; but rather that, as soon as you taste it, you
make progress day by day and, forgetting what lies
behind, strain forward to what lies ahead.” (Saint Anthony
Zaccaria) What is in back of us is sin. What is ahead of us
is greater union with God. St. Paul called the past rubbish
in comparison to the prize that he strove for, life with God.
How often we find ourselves looking back at the fleshpots
of our past life, like the Israelites, rather than at the
promised land flowing with milk and honey. How often do
we let the fear of our inadequacies paralyze us rather than
embracing the trust God calls us into during our journey.
As we keep our eyes on the prize we are able to take the
next step drawing us closer to God.
