06-19-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 19, 2019
Brothers and sisters, consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  2_Cor_9:6-11

And this giving is done out of love.  Not because of requirement, not recompense, not vow, not guilt and not for appearances sake.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.  . . .  And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”  Mt_6:1-6,16-18

Jesus wants us to love so deeply that we are willing to give for no repayment.  We are willing to give, even to the undeserving, even to the guilty.  That’s the grace that God gives to us every day and with every breath we take.  And it all stems from LOVE!

“Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”  Mt_5:48
