Vessels of God's compassionate love for others

"We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become. If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing. Imitation is not a literal mimicking of Christ, rather it means becoming the image of the beloved, an image disclosed through transformation. This means we are to become vessels of God´s compassionate love for others. "

~ St. Clare of Assisi

St. Clare was a wise lady, wasn't she?

I love this quote of St Clare's. Even though this vessel is a cracked pot, God will use the love we show Him and others to seal those cracks.
Thanks for sharing this and God bless!

Elizabeth - LOL much wiser than me!

Karinann - so beautiful. After your comment I pictured the broken vessel (us) and God pouring His love through us.

Thank you ladies.
