Unselfishly Give to Others: Easy or Hard?

Unselfishly giving to others – Do you find it easy or hard to do? If you are like me, you might find it hard to do, all the time. That is because in our society, we are wired to “take care of number 1,” especially in the world of business. We tend to transcend that thought process into our personal lives. How contrary this thought process is to how Christ would like for us to behave as Christians!

Christ’s message was clear. When He taught us to pray the Our Father, he taught us to say, “Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.” Every time we say the Our Father, we are surrendering our will to the Father by aligning our will with that of the Father. Have you ever looked at the words of the Our Father in this way? Do we really mean what we say when we pray the Our Father? God reads the heart. He knows the truth. If we mean what we say, then acting unselfishly should come easy to us. However, if we have reservations about completely submitting to the will of the Father, then acting unselfishly might not be that easy for us. For many of us it is difficult to let go and let God’s will be done.

So, if we would like to truly act unselfishly, on a more consistent basis, how can we accomplish that? Here are a few practical suggestions to get you started:

I ♥ St Faustina! I have this picture hanging up in my room. What a loving message Jesus gave St. Faustina! God has mercy for all souls.... ONLY if we go to God & ask.

The greatest deception, and the deepest source of unhappiness is the illusion of finding life by excluding God.

May St. John Paul II who said faith without reason is destructive and reason without faith dangerous intercede for us that we may reason with the eye of faith accompanied
 by reason in whatever we do.
