As you engage this day, “Be Yourself.” This means be the person God created you to be and not what others expect you to be. When you accept and value yourself as much as God does, the result is not pride or arrogance, but humility, peace, confidence and freedom. Merton captures the spirit of this value perfectly.
“A tree gives glory to God by being a tree. For in being what God means it to be it is obeying God. It “consents” to God’s creative love.” – Thomas Merton
