Thoughts for Today/Inspirational Quotes

Goodness and the Chain of Cause and Effect

Leave a comment

“If goodness has causes, it is not goodness; if it has effects, a reward, it is not goodness either. So goodness is outside the chain of cause and effect.”
― Leo Tolstoy

..

“All comes down to the point and the place where we look within ourselves and see how honest and transparent we are with God..and most of all..by being transparent with him, we see how much or little we love God and whether truthfully or with a wish for the world to see how good we are (when in fact we know He helped us) by taking Him out of the picture, and not giving the credit back to God who sees our heart .. always. Everyday.. day by day.. I am learning to decrease myself so that He who is in me increases.” ~ Me, Artygenius

New Living Translation (NLT)
Matthew 6:5-7
5 “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.
6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
7 “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.

Re: Our God-given talents
“God, as I see my fingers and mind move and work so mysteriously and artistically, I have no other ways to think but simply to understand they are all coming from you, using my fingers You draw, and using my voice You sing. You’re awesome. Love You, Dad.”

This blog is my personal journal, thus was initially intended for myself. Whoever happens to come across my post is certainly welcomed to read it, though I'm unsure if it would inspire you. It does for me, as it's for me. I sometimes read back what I wrote and help motivate myself in my spiritual walk. I enjoy my everyday life. Blessed with many good quality friends and my great musical and artistic talents. I am naturally a happy smiley person, especially when I am surrounded by likeminded people whose value system is similar to mine. I also enjoy meeting new people who help me move out of my comfort zone to continually grow. I prefer people who are naturally honest and transparent with a sense of good integrity. I've been enjoying my life more and more especially for the past half year. Hope this season is bringing you lots of special and blessed moments filled with joy and many laughter. Thanks for visiting my new wordpress blog page today. Have a wonderful day! May God bless you. 😊🌅 - About 'Me'
