God will not be outdone in generosity. For the sake of our salvation, He gave His only Son. God holds nothing back. To imitate Him, we must give as He gives. Aware of God's generosity, St. Ignatius taught his followers this prayer:

Teach us, good Lord, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not count the cost, to fight and not heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not ask for any reward except that of knowing that we do your will.

  • How might I serve God and my neighbor more generously in the days ahead?
  • What can I do today to better know God's will and to conform to it today?
