Pushing

Where do we go when we die?

Ultimately, it’s one place or the other.

Each of us will either go to the place prepared for us from eternity. To become exactly what God always meant for us to be.

Or someplace that was never meant for us. To become something that God never meant for us to be.

Everything we do. All of our choices. All of our decisions. Taken together, they’re moving us towards one place. Or the other.

Nothing you and I do is indifferent.

The thing is, we’re not doing it alone.

You and I, like it or not, are helping each other towards one place. Or the other.

Everything you and I do. All of your choices. All of my decisions. You and I are pushing someone towards one place. Or the other.

Nothing you and I do is indifferent.

This is what St. Paul is talking about when he says:

“Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory;
rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves,
each looking out not for his own interests, 
but also everyone for those of others.”

Because you and I are pushing someone towards one place. Or the other.

This is why you and I must always ask. In all of our choices. In all of our decisions.

Where are we pushing each other?
