Piety Pointers at Your Service!

Piety Pointers

We could all use some. So here is my little list to share with you. Perhaps you have additional ones to add to this list. If so, please share with the group:

Have reverence for God by worshiping Him

By reverence, I mean to hold God in awe, recognizing His omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (all present) Being. Have respect for God, and all that He is, when worshipping Him. Be on time for church services. Dress modestly in church. Actively participate in church services (be fully present in mind and body). Revere the silence of prayer. Visit the Blessed Sacrament.

Respect your elders, your superiors at work and your country

Talking back to your elders or being passive-aggressive at work only makes you look bad. Instead, engage with your elders; show some respect for their years of wisdom. You might learn a thing or two. Actively participate at work in problem resolution; look for the win-win solution. Respect office holders of your government, even when you disagree with the course of direction being taken; remembering that those in office are also children of God.

Adhere to the Ten Commandments

This doesn’t mean applying relativistic terms to suit your convenience. No, this means actually adhering to the Ten Commandments laid out by God many millennia ago. Just because it is the 21st century, it doesn’t mean that God’s laws are passé. God’s laws exist to help you grow in piety.

Incorporate the Beatitudes into your daily life

When Jesus shared the Beatitudes with us, He literally showed us the pathway to piety. Embrace the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-11.

As we grow in piety, we seek Truth. We’ll begin discussing the virtue of Truth in our next reflection. Don’t miss it!
