Worthiness is Not the Issue

Thomas Keating, in Manifesting God, says: “Worthiness is not the issue.” Get over it. Stop projecting your own self-esteem issues onto God. God is God, not the god you make Him out to be.

The Gospel is not about earning the love of God because we already have it. It is a matter of receiving it and of being grateful.

And this takes humility, the first Beatitude, blessed are the poor in spirit…

Thank you Father. Help me to recognize and remember my poverty.
