Once we begin chipping away at our duties, a new feeling begins. Even when we don’t want to be doing what we must, we may find ourselves almost enjoying ourselves. We begin seeing the gifts and feeling the reasons for why we’re doing what we are. We may feel stronger, closer to God, closer to other people. At least we feel good about ourselves.
Ignoring our duties piles up guilt and anxiety. Fulfilling true duties energizes us. It feels good in the end.
Prayer: God, help me do the hard stuff that I need to do. Help me do it with an attitude of service and love.
