The Divine Purpose

The purpose of a broom is to sweep, to keep the house clean. But someone has to wield the broom.

Our purpose in life is to do good, to try to make the world a better place because we have lived in it. And that which really motivates man is the ever-present, ever-active Principle, divine Love. Love is the Mind, the Life, of man and of the infinite universe. But we constantly must be alert in knowing that we are animated by divine Love. Just as laziness could keep a broom from being used for the purpose for which it was made, so selfishness and other false qualities keep one from the true purpose in life, which is doing good.
