Thinking as God

August 30, 2020 3:30 am

“He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.’” (MT 16: 23)

Thinking as God does is possible—seeing the world, our relationships, our spouses and children, our neighbors, and our colleagues from His perspective is the best thing we can do for them. We are loved unconditionally; they are loved, by the same God, unconditionally as well. When we are thinking like God, from Our Lord’s perspective, we are better spouses, parents, siblings, coworkers, bosses, and parishioners. And better coaches! 

“Take my yoke upon you, says the Lord, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
