November 6, 2013: Doing Good

~ by Sr. Marie Rene, S.S.J.

“Jesus went about doing good.”

When I read or hear these words, I ask myself, what am I doing as I go about?

When I am in a store, I see people sometimes pushing and shoving their way about and I say a prayer for the presence of kindness.

When I am walking up or down stairs, I thank God that I can walk instead of complaining about having to do so.

Whenever I am in a conversation with a group I try to be cognizant, am I listening rather than monopolizing the conversation? Listening by far is much more advantageous.

My life is happier because I work on listening to God every day through the little moments as well as the big.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
