The Child Given to Me
We usually think that if we aren’t hurting anybody, we aren’t sinning.
But what if I pictured my own soul as a child put into my care?
If I’m punishing my self too much or disciplining too little, overworking, eating too much, or giving myself too little sleep, why would it hurt God any less than if I were hurting somebody else.
So the next time I wonder if I should be doing something, maybe I need to ask myself if I am not only being good to others, but if I’m being good to myself.
