There is a ceaseless call in us, between the seed of this individual that we presently are and the tree of life, the Christ within that we are intended to become. What do you think it is inside of you that wants to be a good person? To help somebody when they need help and do it without claiming some prize for doing it? That understands that even though you don’t want to do it, there are times when sacrifice is not just mandatory but is required of you?
