Living for God, not people, seems difficult
because you do not perceive a material reward
for your good life. But the truth is the opposite.
God’s spirit, living inside you, will reward you
instantly, and this spiritual reward is better than
anything anyone else can give you.
This is the ENTIRE Gospel. Period. FULL STOP.
God: Conscience, Spirit of Loving, Heart, Compassion, Empathy, that of the Creator in us, Humanity, Sanity, Still Small Voice Within, Goodness within, our Christ Spirit, Universal Family Feeling, Agape.... [These are all the same thing, by different names.]
From: Wise Thoughts for Every Day" (Personal Trainer) L. Tolstoy
'Oh, and Living for God, as Tolstoy expresses it IS to LIVE FOR PEOPLE, but not as Slave to their petty wishes, neglect, cruelty, hostility, vindictiveness...
JOYFUL SLAVE TO OUR NEEDIEST PEOPLE'S GREATEST NEEDS OF BODY AND SOUL.
