Monthly Motto November’ 19

„Play fair – Be honest with you and with the others!“

Holy Scripture: Ps 51,12

„Make me, God, a pure heart and give me a new constant spirit.“

Impulse:

There are many situations where we have to meet the needs of others. Tests at school or at university can be situations like these or social expectations in terms of behavior or appearance. That does not have to be negative, because rules often make living together possible. But still: it is important to give your life a “red thread” and not to lose sight of what you desire and hope in the heart. It is often not easy to recognize that. It can help if we practice it in the company of others who are good with us and to whom we can honestly communicate our wishes. This is how we learn to give our life a direction and to set our own accents, which then do not go at the expense of others but also make their lives more beautiful and richer. And because we can rely on the support of God, we can ask with the ancient prayer from the psalms: “Make me, God, a pure heart and give me a new constant spirit!”. If we live like this, the “red threads” of our lives will become a beautiful and sustainable network for all.
