Unawareness of Life and Love
General Objective: That we may discover why we do not live fully the plan of God for our lives
Objective of the week:
To discover that everything comes from the living ignorance of God’s Life and Love.
God created us with a gift of free will. As human, we are free and can choose. There are moments in our lives that we are unaware that our free will or freedom to choose separates us from the knowledge of our true identity as sons and daughters of God. We, sometimes without discernment, choose to live our own way setting aside the prompting of the Spirit through our conscience. A formed conscience guides us to the path that leads us to the fulfillment of the will of the Father. God places His law in each one of us. In prayer, he reveals His will for each one of us. When we choose to do our will that is not of God’s we destroy ourselves and our happiness. Indeed, lack of discernment is unawareness.
God’s law is engraved in our minds and hearts
God reveals His will to us
(St. Gregory the Great, Pope and Doctor)
God gives us freedom to choose
Choosing our own will breaks our conscience
Going against our conscience destroys us and our happiness
Lack of discernment is unawareness
