The Joy In Loving

Last night, I finished reading Mother Teresa's book "The Joy In Loving."I always enjoy reading her words. Here's a quote from the book:

Whether one is a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian, how you live your life is a proof that you are or not fully His.

We cannot condemn or judge or pass words that will hurt people. We don't know in what way God is appearing to that soul and what God is drawing that soul to; therefore, who are we to condemn anybody?

-- Mother Teresa

And this one:

Humility is the mother of all virtue, purity, charity and obedience. It is in being humble that our love becomes real, devoted and ardent.

If you're humble, nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are. If you're blamed, you will not be discouraged. If they call you a saint, you will not put yourself on a pedestal.

-- Mother Teresa
