When I think of Mother Teresa, I see a woman who gave her life fully over to service to the poor. I also see someone who was filled with joy. To her, love wasn’t a thing to strive for or to hold onto, but to freely share in words and works for others. She knew that even one act of agape love has the power to change a person for the better, to lead them closer to God.
This humble nun showed the world what it looks like to spend each day following Jesus’ call. And I think she would be the first to encourage all of us that no ministry is too small. We can step out and do what we can, when we can, to impact those around us for the Lord right now.
“It’s not about how much you do, but how much love you put into what you do that counts.”
“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
