Thought of the Day January 4, 2018 The Will of God

By 2:41 PM

"The first end I propose in our daily work is to do the will of God; secondly, to do it in the manner he wills it; and thirdly to do it because it is his will."(St. Elizabeth Ann Seton) Sometimes the simple words of an ordinary person can be so profound and disarming. Our lives are complicated. We need to simplify them. What better way than to put this adage into practice in our daily decisions. Even though it is simple wisdom, we know that it is not always easy to accomplish. Yet, if we try each day to focus on the will of God for us in the present moment and attempt to do his will, as he wills it, because he wills it, then  our life will be become better and simpler. What do we lose by trying it?
