Lectio Notebook

But the things of the world are not unimportant, nor are they a matter of indifference, least of all to God since He created the world that it might be and He saw that it was good (Gen. 1-10). He wants it to remain good, and it grieved His heart when sin invaded the goodness of His World.

He took that invasion so seriously that He gave His only-begotten Son (Jn 3:16). God has put His work into men’s hands for them to maintain and continue and He wants them to complete it for His joy and to give meaning to their own lives. God is with us when we do our work, whatever it may be. We are to do it for Him and with Him.

The Living God,
Romano Guardini
