Jesus loves everyone, – even the lowly. Am I always like that? Even if someone is “unpopular” or I do not want to be associated with them just because they are uncool or annoying? Wouldn’t I be putting myself above Jesus? If they don’t deserve my mercy, do I deserve God’s? Do I guard my heart the way God wants me in terms of relationships? I can be patient during this time and instead let God strengthen my heart and soul. I will be much happier if I fully trust in God.

Think about being with Jesus for eternity, with God and Mary and all the angels and saints. When pondering eternity, I wonder also, how I would want to live my life – I only have one chance to be merciful, thankful, grateful, kind, loving, caring; every reflection of Jesus, I should strive for. Then I think of how much Jesus sacrificed for me. His passion, his crucifixion, his death was all so that I may experience eternity with him, because he loves me. With that in my subconscious, I can find the motivation I’ve been looking for towards a life of holiness.
