Day 13 - 30 Days of Prayer

Friday | May 5, 2017

Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age:  houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come. ~ Mark 10:29-30

      In areas of our lives that are good, we are often asked to make a sacrifice.  Sometimes it is for our job or community and often for our family. These sacrifices can cause inconvenience or suffering at first, but in the long run we get benefits back that are worth much more than what we had to give up. 

For reflection:  Am I as generous toward my parish as I am with other areas of my life?
