God Sees Our Hearts and How We Respond to Him — A Quote from François Fénelon in “Talking with God”

“God does not so much regard our actions as he does the motive of love from which they spring and the pliability of our wills to his. Men judge our deeds by their outward appearance; with God, that which is most dazzling in the eyes of man is of no account. What he desires is a pure intention, a will ready for anything, and ever pliable in his hands.”

— François Fénelon, “Talking with God” (Translated by Hal M. Helms), p 74
