Promptings of the Spirit

Jesus said to his disciples:
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
~ John 15:12-14

I always get thrilled when I see a thing of beauty. There is something deep in mr that resonates with what is beautiful.

It is always exhilarating when I learn something to be true. There is something deep within me that profoundly appreciates what is true.

I always feel animated when I see goodness in things and people around me. It is what i want to be and to become.

When I see people in pain and in sorrow, there is something that moves me to be compassionate and to comfort them.

When I see what is ugly and untrue, I know this is not how things are supposed to be and I want to change them for the better.

When I see the hungry I want to share my food with them; when I see the thirsty, I’d give up my drink for them; when I see the homeless, I’d like to welcome them into my home.

It is not always that I am successful in working for what is true and good and beautiful. But I know the Holy Spirit and God’s love dwells within me prompting me and nudging me towards the right direction.

I only need to be sensitive to the promptings and the nudging of the Spirit till I full get it.
