I’m in the library during the relatively quiet hours of a school night.
After doing my devotionals, I pondered on a quote that are in big, bold letters here on the second floor.
Mind you, that Ghandi is quoted on the 3rd floor, and I’m sure that some steward of religious or ethical duty is quoted on the 4th floor.
The quote says, “All we are is a result of what we have thought”. – Shakyamuni Bhuddha
Here is my connection to the quote:
We are a result of sin. Sin forms our deepest thoughts and invades the most secret areas of our heart.
But I’m sure Buddha was never truly enlightened by the magnitude of his own sin.
Reflecting upon Easter weekend, I can confidently say that “All we are is a result of God’s grace and mercy”. His love is fire that cleanses and gives a renewed purpose to live.
All we are is a result of Christ Crucified.
All we are is a result of Christ’s Resurrection.
All we are is a result of His Love.
