Romans 12:5-16, Psalm 131:1-3, Luke 14:15-24


Romans 12:5-16,  Psalm 131:1-3,  Luke 14:15-24

Romans 12:5-16

My Beloved, St. Paul reminds us that we do not live in isolation, independent of each other rather as members of Your Body we all have different function. We must fulfill our duty and our obligations faithfully according to the gifts that we have received. When we all work together in harmony, each using their particular talents then we further the Kingdom of God on earth. We belong to God first and in loving and serving Him with our whole heart, our whole mind, our whole soul and our strength we will be all that God desires us to be and do all that God has created and planned for us to do. Each according to his or her gifts will work joyfully and with zeal as one body to ensure that  none of her members are neglected, forgotten or are in want for anything. We are called to be generous with the things that God has given us so that none will ever have more than they need. Grant us the gift of true humility my Beloved to be humble as You were and are humble though You are God.

Psalm 131:1-3

My Beloved, this is the prayer of one who is truly humble. With perfect knowledge that he or she can do nothing without You. One who having You knows they possess all things and needs nothing more than You for they can count on You to supply all their needs. Grant that I make this prayer my own.
