Friday, June 17, 2011:
Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel you have a kernel of life in My Words: ‘Where your treasure lies, so lies your heart.’ What is meant here is you either hold Me close to your heart or your money. Those, who are selfish, buy everything for themselves without regard for others. In this case their treasure is money, and this is where their heart is. For the Christian, you should share your wealth with the poor, the Church, and your family. If you are leaving out the poor, then you need to spend less on your family. When people are strapped with lower incomes and higher inflated expenses, then donations have to be cut back to balance the budget. Still make an effort to give something to your food shelves, the poor, or victims of natural disasters. Remember that I love a cheerful giver who does not hold back even a little for the poor.”
