is theway we begin our day. How do we
end^it?
As the 8:25 class commences, we offer aprayer; but do we offer the class to Christ?Recitations, interest, notes,
assignments—do
we
offer
them
?
We promise this work to Godupon rising, but do we make it worthy ofthis promise? Let's think back over today'sclasses. What is the answer?Classes are
over;
it's
coffee
time. We, whohave offered the joys of our day to Christ,crowd into the lounge. Let's stop and listento the conversation echoing from each cornerof the room. Is it always charitable? Wehave also offered this talk to Our Lord.We offer every thought, every word, everyaction of every day to Christ as we rise. As
the
hours pass by, they become less and lessworthy of the sacrifice that we have madein the morning.Let's try to make each day more
Christ
like by renewing our Morning Offering manytimes during the day. By doing this we canbring Our Lord into our classes, our lounge,our
meals—into
everything. |
