“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 8:9

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Remember how generous the Lord Jesus was:

He was rich, but He became poor for your sake,

to make you rich out of His poverty.

.

– 2 Corinthians 8:9

.

REFLECTION…

.

Our Lord, in His Incarnation and throughout His life,

gave us a wonderful example of generosity and detachment.

.

Our Lord, because He is God, was in need of nothing;

but by becoming man

He voluntarily despoiled Himself of the splendour of His divinity

and lived on earth as a poor man

– from His birth in poverty in Bethlehem to His death on the cross.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

My Lord, my King, teach me

how to be generous, like You,

in my love for others.

.

Teach me Lord,

how to put love for You and for others

above all else.

.

Teach me

how to not let possessiveness and greed

obscure the path You have laid out for me.

.

Teach me

how to joyfully leave it all in your Hands,

that Your will be done.

.

Amen.
