Mother Teresa was a living saint who put her faith in Jesus and like Him helped and loved others. She lovingly dedicated her whole life to save the poor, and much more.
She became a role model for us today. When you give willingly to another, something happens to us. Our hearts grow with love. The seed that God has placed in our soul grows. And it feels good. So, if it feels so good to give to others, why do we live in such a selfish generation? Why is there so much rebellion and selfishness in our society today? I am not saying we all are, but it seems more today than previous generations. Here is what Mother Teresa said about that.
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home, begins the disruption of peace of the world.
We can start by using our talents for our communities, churches, our neighbors, and schools.
Here are some of my favorite Mother Teresa quotes:
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I don’t know that when we die, and it comes time for God to judge us, he will NOT ask, How many good things have you done in your life? Rather he will ask, how much LOVE did you put into what you did?
I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
What are some of your favorite quotes from Mother Teresa? I would love to hear from you.
We all are given talents from God. They are not ours to hide.
