BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 2nd, 2023 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in WALKING ON WATER

“Being ambitious can be a wonderful thing. But being enslaved by ambition is horrible. People ruled by ambition don’t even live. There’s no need to explain this. We all know people like that. What are you to do if you are a victim of ambition? Put yourself in the presence of God, make an act of faith that the future is in God’s hands. Say to God, “Lord, I trust that you have control over the future. I am going to do everything I can to achieve my dreams, but I leave the result in your hands.” Afterward be thankful for what results from such an attitude.”

Fr. Anthony DeMello, S.J., in “Walking on Water”
