As the apple tree stands firm in the orchard, ever ready to share its fruits with those who seek its nourishment, so too are the righteous ones called to extend their hands in generous giving. This act of giving, my child, mirrors the divine principles of a flourishing economy, where the divine currency of love is abundantly circulated.
Charity has always been a fundamental part of our Christian values, to give joyfully and without expecting anything in return.
Just as God has given us all an abundance of love and light, we must extend this kindness to those around us. We have each been blessed with a unique set of gifts and talents – it is up to us to use these for the greater good.
A Spirit of Kindness
Much like the finely woven fabric of an economy, our lives are intricately connected. From the industrious farmer to the savvy investor; both entrust their resources to with faith in the promise of future growth.
Their harvest of is a bounty from God who has showered His blessings abundantly. One should never forget the true source of all abundance, and give back to the Lord in kindness and charity.
The investments of the righteous are not steeped in mere material possessions. Rather, they invest in the spiritual wealth of compassion, kindness, and generosity, understanding that the currency of compassion is the most valuable asset, its value appreciating with every act of kindness.
We the blessed, have been called to direct our resources towards elevating the less fortunate. This is not simply an act of benevolence, but a divine mandate, a sacred trust placed upon us as it is written in the scriptures.
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his deed”– Proverbs 19:17
The Many Forms of Giving
We must also remember that generosity comes in many forms. It does not always require money – it can often be more meaningful when it is given through acts of kindness or service. By engaging with the community in meaningful ways and recognizing everyone’s unique gifts and talents, we show our true commitment to helping others in need.
It is also important that we strive for justice and fairness when helping others, so that no one is taken advantage of or neglected while trying to make ends meet. We are called upon by God Himself to treat all people with respect, dignity and fairness regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances.
The Circle of Giving
Being generous isn’t just something that is done out of obligation –it can be incredibly rewarding too! Giving back can fill our souls with joy as we help others on their journeys towards self-improvement and success. It can lift up those who have been struggling for too long without hope for change – by providing them with support, resources, guidance and charity we help them become better versions of themselves which can bring immense fulfillment into our own lives too!
All Things Grounded in Love
In the grand symphony of life, each note, each act of kindness, reverberates throughout the cosmos. Yet, how often do we miss the opportunity to play our part in this harmonious melody?
Now, consider this: What seeds of generosity can you sow today? As you ponder this question, remember the widow in Luke 21:1-4 who in her poverty, gave all she had to the temple treasury. Hers was an investment of faith, a testament to the power of giving even in times of scarcity.
We all have something valuable inside us waiting for an opportunity – so ask yourself today; what kind gesture can you do for someone else? How can you use your own gifts and talents in order make an impact on those around you?
This could be anything from donating gently used items at a local shelter or helping someone find employment – no matter what it may be – let your spirit guide you towards creating positive change within yourself firstly before passing it on outwardly towards others!
Let Us Pray
Oh, Saint Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, intercede for us that we may learn to give generously and elevate the less fortunate.
May we embrace the divine finance of love and mercy, understanding that the wealth we hold is not our own, but a gift to be shared.
Let our hearts be filled with the joy of giving, and may our investments of faith yield a rich harvest of compassion and love.
Saint Michael, pray for us. Amen 🙏
