How to please God

“…because I always do what is pleasing to Him” (J 8:29)

Our Lord knows His Father perfectly and, for sure, He knows what is pleasing to Him. We are invited to follow His ways.

The question always is: what is pleasing to Him? Where to look for the answer? He himself prayed  – “Our Father, who art in heaven… Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…” The will of God. To be saint? Yes, of course. But we know that life is more specific. To become parents again or not? To change my work, or stay where I am? Switch to homeschooling or not? And many other questions. How to always do what is pleasing to Him?

I know that there is only one will of God – to love each other. If we put love first, we will see all else clearly. When we put our expectations first – we can’t. Because love is based on patience, respect, kindness and gift of self. And He promised to be with us forever. He is with us in His word, in the Eucharist, Sacrament of Penance and other Sacraments. And in many other ways. Just ask and He will come. In many different ways.

“Wait for the Lord; be strong; be stouthearted, and wait for the Lord” (Ps 27:14) – Entrance Antiphon
