Quality, not quantity

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. Last week at Catholic Club we had a quote by Mother Theresa as our weekly “nugget” as Chris would call it. She said this:

“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I 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 think this is an awesome thing to think about. A lot of the times I find myself feeling guilty for not doing enough to make the world a better place. When I see these people starting foundations to feed the hungry and bring clean water to third world countries I feel like I am not fulfilling my Christian duties. From now on when I get those feelings I will always remember what Mother Theresa said. It isn’t always about how many good acts we do, it is about how much love we show in those acts. If we do some huge thing half-heartedly it doesn’t mean nearly as much as a small act done with the greatest amount of love we can possibly give. 

In short: Quality. Not quantity. 

 I love you all, and everyone is in my prayers as we all get ready to take finals and begin our summer!
