How to do what we do

Do you ever get so caught up in getting it all done that you forget why you are doing it? I do. All the time. Which is why I loved this from This Tremendous Lover by Dom Eugene Boylan:

No matter what we do, unless we do it in the love of God, it profits us nothing. God wants our love, He will be satisfied with nothing else. That is what He principally looks for in our works. The things we do or achieve are not of primary value to God, for He can create them by a mere thought or with just as much ease He can raise up other free agents to do what we do. But the love of our hearts is something unique, something no one else can give Him…He wants our love, but because He desires to make us happy with Him for ever, and He can only do that if we are in love with Him.
