May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts. Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God. What is too sublime for you, seek not, into things beyond your strength search not. The mind of a sage appreciates proverbs, and an attentive ear is the joy of the wise. Water quenches a flaming fire, and alms atone for sins.

When we live our life truly for God, no one will see us, they will only see Him. That is how we are to live. Our lives should be a reflection and mirror of God and His word. All else is meaningless.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may all who see me, see you. May all who hear me, hear you. May I be you for all the hurting people in the world. May I live to serve only you, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen.

God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.
