Our Faith Moments this week have challenged us to re-evaluate our motives. How do we express our faith? Why do we do what we do?
Do we attend Mass or services out of habit...or are we truly honoring God by joining in celebration of His love?
Do we donate to charity to look good to our peers...or is our giving heart-felt in the spirit of Christ?
Do we recite prayers we learned as children without any thought...or do we seek to deepen our understanding of God's will for us?
True followers of Christ are not motivated by personal gain. As we hear in the second reading from James, "be doers of the Word, not hearers only."
As you reflect on your own motives, ask not "what will I get?" but rather "what can I give?"
