Love God, and do what you like

In one of those famous Charlie Brown cartoons Charlie stopped at Lucy’s psychiatric help stand and said: ‘My trouble is I never know if I’m doing the right thing. I need to have someone around who can tell me when I’m doing the right thing.’ So Lucy says, ‘Okay. You’re doing the right thing. That’ll be five cents, please!’ Charlie walked away with a smile on his face, but a few minutes later he returned with a frown. ‘Back already?’ Lucy asked. Charlie said, ‘I was wrong. It didn’t help. You need more in life than just having someone around to tell you when you’re doing the right thing.’ Lucy replied: ‘Well now you’ve really learned something! That’ll be another five cents please.’
Shakespeare said ‘To your own self be true,’. Or, as St Augustine cryptically put it: ‘Love God, and do what you like.’
