Is our faith selfish or selfless?
I was contemplating the faith example of Mother Theresa last week. Here is a woman who, for the majority of her ministry, did not feel the presence of Jesus Christ. Yet she remained obedient to her faith.
Would we do the same?
Don’t we enjoy feeling God’s presence at church? Don’t we rely on the love we feel from our Creator? Would we still be obedient to all of Jesus’ hard teachings if we felt nothing? If we prayed and heard nothing?
Mother Theresa’s faith was a selfless faith… the ultimate of faith. She followed Jesus’ call and honored Him everyday no matter what she got out of it.
Her’s is one of the greatest examples of having faith.
And it made me wonder… is my faith selfless or selfish? I fear it is the former… and I must move toward the latter.
