Illumined Path: God’s Work

From “Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives: The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica”:

Illumined PathAny work we do here on earth is God’s work. … We should not think too much about who our superiors are, or who are employer is.

What we should bear in mind is that every type of work on earth and in all the universe is God’s work, and as such it should be performed from the heart, without reservation. When we do so, we can free ourselves from interior resistance.

Every action of ours will then help our neighbor, beginning with our family, wherever we may be. So we must always be sincere. Then we radiate peace, quiet, and love, and we are loved in return.

Illumined Path, providing reflections on finding Christ in our everyday lives, is a ministry of St. Elia the Prophet Orthodox Christian Church in Akron, Ohio.
