Motives of our hearts

September 5, 2014 10:29 am

“Therefore, do not make any judgment before the appointed time, until the Lord comes, for he will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.” (1 Cor 4: 5)

We try to say something nice, we have plans to call a friend, or we want to go home earlier, but nothing comes of it. Fortunately, Our Lord knows “the motives of our hearts” and “will bring to light what is hidden.” My prayers for friends, my mortifications and all hidden victories “will receive praise from God” even if no one else noticed.

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
