Purifying our Motivation: Driven or Drawn?

Evangelization necessarily includes actions. For indeed, faith works. But (and I wrestle with this personally all the time), not every good action is the right one for each of us to take.

Joe Tetlow, S.J. suggests we ask ourselves, “Am I drawn towards this? (by the Lord) or “Am I driven to this?” (by our baggage and compulsions.) (h/t Driven or Drawn?)

I pray:

Lord, free me from the temptation to be driven.

Holy Spirit, grant me the wisdom and patience to be drawn.
