You Are a Child of God

John 6:45
“Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.”

It’s not what we do that brings us closer to God but what we let be done to us by God. It is not an achievement contest or a life-long SAT test! It’s about becoming a fully human, unique creation and expression of God’s love! Allow God to draw you closer. Hear that you are God’s beloved child…fully accepted as you are. Live in this knowledge and awareness. Allow God to channel Love and Compassion through you. Then the motivation for your actions will not be to merit or achieve anything…but will simply be your response to being loved. For that to happen…you’ll need to spend some quiet time…listening.
