This morning a line from a psalm really struck me. It asked, "who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?" Part of the answer said it is the one "who desires not worthless things."
That phrase really made me pause. Do I desire worthless things? Are the things that I desire really worthwhile? What are the deepest desires of my heart?
St Ignatius used that last question in helping people to see how God was speaking to them and working in their hearts. I can tell what I really and truly desire by looking at the choices I make each day.
Lord, help me to have holy desires and not to waste my desires on worthless things!
