How do I know when I’m doing God’s will?
It’s not a flippant question. Every time I say the Lord’s Prayer, I’m asking for God’s will to be done.
I could just hang out and try not to get in the way while God does His thing, but I don’t think that’s the way it works. WE need to do His will. Including ME.
The easiest way, I suppose, is to follow the Ten Commandments. There are even guides like the Examen which help me to translate the commandments into my modern situation.
But it doesn’t feel helpful to just add more rules to my day.
It comes down to simply:
- Loving God with all my heart, mind, and soul, and
- Loving my neighbor as myself.
That brings every event, every decision, back into focus.
