Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
II Corinthians 9:6-11
When I perceive that I am victim of unemployment, disease, or unkindness I grasp everything I have to myself, trying my best to survive. But when I realize the truth of life, that at God’s hand I have been given everything I really need, then I am able to share this wealth –this treasure from God –abundantly, whether in time, treasure or talent. When I share abundantly, then I become witness to God not only supplying but multiplying the increase of his harvest of ‘righteousness’, that is in reality good for everyone involved. Then we, as Paul says, ‘will be enriched in every way for [our] great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us’. Lord God, because you have given me everything I need, teach me to share abundantly.
Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. (Psalm 112:3,4)
Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
St. Mother Teresa
