Mindful Minutes with the Merry Monk, 3 Ask and it shall be given
Many of us are often tempted to believe we can do it all on our own. Whatever IT might happen to be. This is usually a great mistake. Why forget ancient wisdom? It teaches us that “many hands make light work” and “two heads are better than one.” You and I would do better to graciously accept the help of others. Makes their day too!
Christian Meditation 6: Mercy Reveals a Compassionate Heart
We are all tempted to be selfish, but we forget that the best possible gift we can give ourselves is to love, serve and show mercy to others. God repays this a hundredfold. Ask yourself, what kind of heart have I? Am I truly loving, compassionate and merciful? What more could I do to improve? To Love? Be merciful?

Christian Meditation 5: A Passion for Justice
Here we focus on those who stand up for justice, even at great personal cost. Such heroes deserve our admiration, gratitude and imitation. Ask yourself – am I afraid to speak up for my values? Could I be better in the future? Am I just? Honest? True in all I do? Have you a passion to see justice done?
Christian Meditation 4: Your Christian call to Humility
Humility, a beautiful virtue, is simply to recognise, with deep gratitude, that all we have, and all that we do, and all that we are comes from our creator, the God of love. As Jesus himself tells us “Without me, you can do nothing.” Are you truly humble in your dealings with God, and with other people? No arrogance?
