A morning reminder


I got a little note from a Seattlite this morning. At the end of his words these familiar words were written...

I knew before that God gave life to men and desires that they should live; now I understood more than that. I understood that God does not wish men to live apart, and therefore he does not reveal to them what each one needs for himself; but he wishes them to live united, and therefore reveals to each of them what is necessary for all to live together. I have now understood that though it seems to men that they live by care for themselves, in truth it is love alone by which they live. He who has love, is in God, and God is in him, for God is love.
- Tolstoy

The rhythm of these words have marked my life. After reading them, I was immediately taken back to the large class room on the 3rd floor of MHGS. My life is much different now then it was the first time I heard those words, yet the call is no different. Life with God is a life with others.

Thanks for the reminder.
