“At a certain point, I just felt, you know, God is not looking for alms, God is looking for action."

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Mahatma Gandhi: (1869 – 1948: was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule.) 

Gospel Text: (LK 17:7-10)
Jesus said to the Apostles:
"Who among you would say to your servant
who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field,
'Come here immediately and take your place at table'?
Would he not rather say to him,
'Prepare something for me to eat.
Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink.
You may eat and drink when I am finished'?
Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?
So should it be with you.
When you have done all you have been commanded, say,
'We are unprofitable servants;
we have done what we were obliged to do.'"

We really do not deserve anything from God: everything is a gift from him: we cannot make demands from God.
