WORD of the DAY 

Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.  [Now] this is how we shall know that we belong to the truth and reassure our hearts before him in whatever our hearts condemn, for God is greater than our hearts and knows everything.   (1 John 3: 18-21)

How shall I live this Word?

John, the apostle who was closest to Jesus and knew the most intimate fibers of His heat, recommends these things to us.  “Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.  This is how we shall know that we belong to the truth”.  How can we know this?  Place yourself before the Lord: question your heart; look at what you have done, what you have desired in your actions: your salvation or rather human praise that is lost in the wind.  Look into your conscience, because we cannot judge what we cannot see.  If we want to have a peaceful conscience, let us do it in front of Him.  If our conscience reproves us for something, if it accuses us interiorly because we are not acting with a right intention, God is greater than our heart and knows everything.

Lord Jesus, call me to Yourself and You judge me.  Thank You for Your infinite mercy.

The Voice of Christine Cayol, Thinker

To surrender to the heart is to surrender to childhood. It is surrendering to laughter and, above all, accepting to leave your hand in that of another, to abandon oneself without reserve. “.
