M is for Monk

A monk is a man who seeks God because he has been found by God.

Thomas Merton, The Silent Life

A monk is a man who has given up everything in order to possess everything.

Thomas Merton, The Waters of Siloe



Obviously I’m not a monk. I would restate Merton’s quotes into a statement and a prayer:

I seek God because I have been found by God.

Lord, help me to give up my everything so that I may possess Your everything.
