St. Gertrude – Forget Unjust Standards of The World, Focus On Raising Your Heavenly Credit Score

I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak with you today about the importance of giving credit to others and doing good deeds to raise your heavenly credit score.

I have seen firsthand the transformative power of living a life of service and compassion, and I want to encourage you to embrace this way of life as you seek to grow closer to God.

The Importance of Giving Credit Where It Is Due

One of the key ways to demonstrate your appreciation for the value and worth of others is to give credit where it is due. This means recognizing the contributions and accomplishments of others, and taking the time to thank and acknowledge them for their efforts.

Whether it is a colleague at work, a family member, or simply someone you encounter in your daily life, be sure to give credit where credit is due. This not only helps to build relationships and foster a sense of community, but it also demonstrates your gratitude and respect for others.

As Saint Paul wrote, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9). By giving credit to others, we can help to sow seeds of goodness that will bear fruit in the lives of those around us, and in our own lives as well.

Taking Risks For The Sake of Good

I encourage you to consider the ways in which you might be able to take risks for the sake of doing good. This might involve stepping out of your comfort zone to help someone in need, or taking on a challenge that requires you to stretch and grow.

Remember that God often calls us to step out in faith and to take risks for the sake of serving others. Don’t be afraid to take a chance and make a difference in the world around you, even if it means stepping out of your comfort zone.

Improving Your Heavenly Credit Score

One of the most effective ways to raise your heavenly credit score is to seek out opportunities to serve others. This might involve volunteering at a local charity or non-profit organization, or simply offering a helping hand to someone in need.

Remember that service to others is one of the most powerful expressions of love and compassion, and that it has the ability to transform both the lives of those being served and the lives of those doing the serving.

As Jesus said, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in” (Matthew 25:35). By serving others, we not only demonstrate our love and compassion, but we also have the opportunity to bring hope and joy into the lives of those around us.

As you work to raise your spiritual worth, it is important to remember the many blessings that come from living a life that is pleasing to God. A strong spiritual credit score not only reflects well on you in the eyes of others, but it also brings you closer to God and opens the door to many blessings and opportunities. Trust in the Lord and seek to serve Him with all your heart, and watch as He blesses you in ways you could never have imagined.

I pray that you will be filled with joy as you seek to live a life that is pleasing to God, and that you will experience the blessings of His grace as you give credit to others and do good deeds to raise your heavenly credit score.

Let Us Pray

"Dear God, Please help me to improve my spiritual credit by living a life that is pleasing to You. May I always seek to serve You with all my heart and to show appreciation for the value and worth of others. Saint Gertrude, please intercede for me as I strive to grow closer to God and to do good deeds that will raise my heavenly credit score. May I always be mindful of the impact of my actions and seek to make a positive difference in the world around me."

St. Gertrude the Great, pray for us.

Amen 🙏
