Today during prayer before morning Mass, the Lord made me see the importance of appearing "right" before him ~ "right" in the sense of being appropriate and presentable.
The Gospel reading is Parable of the Sower from Luke 8. So I saw that to be right, I must first of all keep and cherish the word of God after I hear it. I must be in a state of grace, at peace with myself, and content in this world. Again, the key to achieving such a state is to let go in God, to trust and relax in his love, in contrast to forging ahead headstrong on our own without getting a nod from the Lord first or even looking in his direction. We must always follow the Lord to let him do his work through us.
