"Salvation is not something we do, it is something that is done to us when we become empty and free."  Richard Rohr

You can't earn it.  You can't demand it.  In fact, salvation demands that we empty ourselves.  There will never be room for the Holy Spirit as long as we are all consumed with our selves.

I have come to believe that you can't simply will away the practice of being self-consumed.  We only stop thinking about ourselves when we begin doing for others.  It is in giving that we receive.  The very joy that we could not take to ourselves, comes rushing in when we give ourselves to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
