Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Tobit 1:2 – 2:8 & Mark 12, 1-12
In these days when many opportunities and technologies lend themselves to doing business, that is, exchanging money, it is more challenging than ever to use my resources wisely and to conduct my affairs with justice. As money and other resources come into my household, do I spend them justly, paying bills or working on projects for the good and just as I understand the Lord would have me do, or is my focus merely ‘looking after myself’? Holy Spirit, help me conduct my affairs with justice.
For I resolved to live according to wisdom, and I was zealous for the good, and I shall never be disappointed. (Sirach 51:18)
