“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 2:3-4

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.

Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,

not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

.

– Philippians 2:3-4

.

REFLECTION…

.

We should always act humbly and with an upright intention

if we want love to reign among us.

.

In our work; in our social life, we should be upright in all our dealings.

We should go about everything, even apparently unimportant things, in a humble way,

doing them for God.

.

Kindness and generosity towards others must come from the heart,

must not be boastful or self-serving, but practiced in a humble and loving manner.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"On coming into the world,

man is not equipped with everything he needs for developing his bodily and spiritual life.

He needs others.

.

Differences appear tied to age, physical abilities, intellectual or moral aptitudes,

the benefits derived from social commerce, and the distribution of wealth.

The "talents" are not distributed equally.

.

These differences belong to God’s plan,

who wills that each receive what he needs from others,

and that those endowed with particular "talents" share the benefits with those who need them.

.

These differences encourage and often oblige persons

to practice generosity, kindness, and sharing of goods…”

.

– Catechism of the Catholic Church CCC 1936-7

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus, Son of the Living God,

Divine Saviour, my Generous Redeemer,

grant me the grace

to see others in the way that You did;

to give to others in the way that You did;

to love others unconditionally in the way that You did.

.

Lord, help me be more like You.
