Your Service: Love or Conformity?

The_Thinker,_Auguste_Rodin

This post is inspired by a good friend of mine who always spurs me on spiritually. It poses this question:

“Is your service to God borne out of Love or out of conformity?”

In simpler terms, do we serve God primarily because we love Him or because we want to make Heaven?

Food for thought:

I think this whole (short) post is a food for thought on it’s own.

    Well for me,

    I don’t see the separation in God and as Lao Tsu would put it, “the ten thousand things.”

    He references this a lot in the Tao Te Ching. But at a point if the illusion is seen (that we are separate) it becomes self abiding love. Because one realizes that we are serving ourselves out of love.

    Until then the seeking is just manipulations and goal oriented. Grace is given through Surrender not through willing it.
