Pure-hearted Giving (2)

Extract

Q&A: What are the seven deadly sins?

Jesus said, “Be careful not to display your righteousness merely to be seen by people. Otherwise, you have no reward with your Father in heaven”. (Matthew 6:1)

Thought

Some say our love of God is private! Perhaps, that’s partly what Jesus was implying!

Reflection

Lord Jesus, where can I sow a little love today and expect no reward?

Prayer: Abandonment (Charles de Foucauld)

Father, I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you;
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve
and with boundless confidence, for you are my Father.
