“we can do no great things. only small things with great love.” –Mother Theresa

Lord, remind me of Mother Theresa’s wisdom when i feel the temptation to be spectacular and powerful. remind me that my life will not be measured by the size of our congregation or the scope of my influence, but by our community’s attempts to proclaim the gospel of Jesus, incarnate His compassion and apply the Sermon on the Mount to our lives. when temptation comes, fill me with your Spirit so that i might remain faithful to both this calling and ministry in this particular place. amen.

"God calls us not to be successful, but to be faithful" - Mother Teresa.

I have this posted both in my mind and in my apartment as a daily example of humility and our ultimate service to God and to His children. Thanks for another very enlightening and heart-shaping statment and prayer.
