Give Credit to God

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself ... RB 4:42

Benedict is asking his followers to trust in God's grace / God's gift freely given. Each one of us is called to be a human presence of God's grace / God's gift in the world and for the world. If I could really realize that everything comes from God - every breath, thought, word, action, encounter - maybe I could really see God's grace / God's gift in myself and in every person, object and event that I encounter. I would be a better person and the world would be a better place too.
