FRIDAY OF THE FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER
from Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB
Whenever you work, you work for some purpose. And in play, all the emphasis falls on the meaning of your activity. Play needs no purpose. We need this kind of experience to correct our world view. Too easily we are inclined to imagine that God created this world for a purpose. We are so caught up in purpose that we would feel more comfortable if God shared our preoccupation with work. But God plays. The only bird God never created is the no-nonsense bird.
