02-03-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 3, 2018
(St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr)
David’s son Solomon declared, “O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant, king to succeed my father David; but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act. I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.  Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong. For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?”  The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request.  1_Kgs_3:4-13

What is it, we would ask of the Lord, if given the chance to have anything?  Would it be something purely for ourselves?  Or would it be something that could benefit others?  The Lord looks for us to be kind, to have pity on our neighbors and to love them as He loves us.  This is exactly what Solomon did that pleased God so much.  It all begins and ends with LOVE!
