Father, today's reading below serves as a gentle reminder of what I should be working toward in my Life. Instead of working on physical wealth, I should be working on my self-worth and spiritual wealth. Instead of working toward earthy possessions, I should be working on my receiving my Divine Inheritance with You. Besides, I cannot take possessions with me when I return to You. At the same time, what I do have in physical form, I should be a better steward over it than I have shown to You. My soul motivation should be all about my connection with You and returning to Yourself. I want to stand in front of You while You say, "See that one there. That one, right there! Yeah, that one! THAT'S MY KID!" Father, I admit, it is not easy living up to the standard of a Christian, but I am up for the task. After all, if it were easy, then everyone would do it. I want to live the Higher Standard that Jesus paved for me to follow. While it may be a hard thing to do, the alternative is even harder. I Love You so much and I want to make You proud; therefore, I choose to make You the foundation of my thoughts, words and actions so that You will be proud to call me Your own. Thank You so much for this awareness today and bringing all my thoughts back to You.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
19 "Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moth and woodworm destroy them and thieves can break in and steal.
20 But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworm destroys them and thieves cannot break in and steal.
21 For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too.
22 The lamp of the body is the eye. It follows that if your eye is clear, your whole body will be filled with Light.
23 But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the Light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!"
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
