Working for Christ
To do the work of Christ is not a complicated thing.
It is really quite simple.
It means to be faithful in little things,
for to be faithful in little things is a big thing.
It means to do one’s task,
no matter how humble it may be,
not only thoroughly but joyfully.
It means to make oneself available,
yet never to seek the limelight.
It means to make oneself useful,
without seeking to push oneself.
It means to strive to remain calm mid
the hustle and bustle of life.
It means to carry one’s own burden,
without, as far as possible,
becoming a burden on others.
In a word it means to be at one’s post,
helpful and faithful, loyal and constant.
As Mother Teresa said:
“We can do no great things - only little things with great love. You can do what I can’t do. I can do what you can’t do.
Together we can do something beautiful for God.”
