Be Your True Self

Psalm 145:10

All your works give you thanks, O Lord.

Most of creation has no choice but to simply be itself with every fiber of its being…whether it’s an insect, a bird, a plant, a tree or a dog. In being themselves…they give thanks to their Creator. But as human beings made in the image of God…we are given free will. We have choices. Will I be me with every fiber of my being…or will I try to be someone else…what someone else or what popular culture wants me to be? How do we become the fullness of what God made each of us to be with every fiber of our being? As St. Ignatius said…we were made to praise, reverence and serve God. We do this by being ourselves. That means now…in the circumstances of this moment. How can I use my gifts and talents to praise, reverence and serve God this day…to make a positive difference…to help make this world a more compassionate and just place…or in other words…to help bring about the kingdom of God? When this is our aim…we are giving thanks to God.
