When who we are cannot be separated from what we believe, and what we believe is lived out attractively toward all we interact with, our lives become a means for the Lord to bless those individuals. Our words and actions become more loving as we strive to become more like the Lord of love. We show mercy and forgiveness toward others as a reflection of the realization of God's mercy and forgiveness toward us. The only natural response for how we spend our time includes Scripture reading, retreats, and acts of service. Our spiritual activities won't emerge because we're bragging about them or contrasting them with others' activities; they'll be impossible to hide entirely because they are so integral to who we are. The activities themselves will bless others as they are the recipients, the changes they make in our lives (words, attitudes, etc) will bless others, and as we invite them to join us in whatever we are doing (dinner, parties, get-togethers) they will be blessed to be surrounded by people who care about them.
