Want what God wants

Readings for Today

Mother Theresa is known to have said that sin is wanting for ourselves something that God does not want for us. This quote does not simply refer to wanting something sinful. In fact, it can also refer to wanting a spiritual gift that God does not give us. It can frustrate us. It can make us jealous of others who have this gift. But any gift that God wants us to have is only good to the degree it leads us into deeper relationship with God.
