22-141 Noble

Today’s Mandala

“I long to accomplish
a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty
to accomplish small tasks
as if they were great and noble.”

— Helen Keller

“To be really great in little things,
to be truly noble and heroic
in the insipid details of everyday life,
is a virtue so rare as to be
worthy of canonization.”

— Harriet Beecher Stowe

“…having, showing, or coming from
personal qualities that people admire
(such as honesty, generosity, courage)“

— definition from Britannica.com

Today’s MotD invites us to explore the idea of being noble in our everyday life. We sometimes think the act of being noble is some grand and dramatic gesture, which it can be, however, we can also apply it to day-to-day activities: washing dishes, picking up the kids from school, shopping for groceries, fixing something that’s broken, holding the door open for someone, etc.

Using Helen Keller’s words, we are encouraged to “accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” How extraordinary would it be to apply this principle throughout our day, treating everything we do from this place of honor. It will definitely do wonders for our hearts and souls.
