Thought of the Day November 14, 2019 The will of God

By 11:29 AM

Someone has said: "To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge! To do the will of God is the greatest achievement." Here is a short prayer by Bobby Richardson, a former New York Yankee second baseman: "Dear God, your will, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else. Amen!" Someone has written: "Perfection consists in doing the will of God, not in understanding the why of his designs or plans."

What is God's will for me today? What are my responsibilities in the present moment? Many years ago I was taught this lesson. Do what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it, the way you are supposed to do it, to the best of your ability for the love of God.  That is the will of God for me in the present moment. The emphasis is not on the work but on doing it because it is the will of God for me here and now. Simple but hard, given my rebellious, self-seeking nature.
