“Everyone paints devotion according to his own passions and fancies,” writes Francis De Sales, which means we tend to emphasize the doing of certain spiritual disciplines with which we are comfortable while neglecting others. I am not bothered by that, as long as we’re not ignoring God’s voice. Paul proclaims, “Love can do no wrong.” De Sales likewise writes, “ True devotion does no harm whatsoever.” If someone is good at prayer, let them pray — not force them into the soup kitchen. If someone is good at working in the church’s garden, let them dig — not insist that they teach Sunday school. Devotion can be exercised in many ways and must be adapted to the strength, the activities, and duties of the individual. What is important is that we engage in whatever devotion God chooses for us with a head over heels love of God and a passion to serve others. God will stir within us the devotion for which we are best suited and take care of the rest.
