St Leo The Great.
Philippians 4:10-19. Psalm 111(112):1-2, 5-6, 8-9. Luke 16:9-15.
Happy are those who fear the Lord – Psalm 111(112):1-2, 5-6, 8-9.
‘As for me, I am full of joy in the Lord.’
Is it possible to give all to God? Is it possible to be God’s servant, God’s slave, as the Gospel says? Most of us experience the push and pull of so many other attractions. It may be money, or success, or some other influence on our lives. At such times, there is little room for God.
My God, you are my All. Yet you see how comparatively rarely I think of you, and how I ignore others in the pursuit of my own concerns. Touch my heart, Lord. Make me sensitive to the goodness around me: the goodness of sympathy, kindness, generosity. Give me your Spirit, so that I may be a person of sympathy, kindness and generosity.
