To Have Life More Abundantly
For several days now, I have been captivated by this sentence: “The forces that change history are the same as those that change man’s heart.” It means that in every point in the world, the same force acts: God. He is the One who moves and motivates every living being. Our way of looking at God can change, but what does not change is his gaze upon us—he gives us beauty, strength, and courage…
For us, it means never giving up. Fighting, seeking what one desires. Hardly “sated and desperate”! But even those who are rich and have food, clothes, and health deep down have something that pushes them to continue seeking: we are always hungry for something different.
So I do not think that today people have stopped seeking. Maybe they do not seek in the right way: we need to learn to appreciate our life. We cannot measure ourselves in terms of success, work, or the car we drive: what if the recession carries these things away? So this, then, is what one desires: that life be united, that there be no division in us.
