THURSDAY 9 JULY
Matthew 10, 7-15:
“What you have received for free, give for free.”
We live in a world where everything is bought or sold.
We use the word GRATUITY very little. And we use much less the content and practice of that word.
However, from the Gospel everything is grace, everything is gift, everything is free. God does not charge us for anything. He gives us everything for free.
For free we receive daily life and everything around us and all that we have.
For free we receive his mercy and his forgiveness.
For free we receive his love and affection. For free we receive his joy and his comfort…
Jesus invites us today to give freely all those gifts and blessings that we have received from the Father.
Give also those gifts that you have received from God: peace, mercy, forgiveness, affection, cordiality, joy…
Think today of three gifts that you can give out during these summer days and commit yourself to giving them out freely.
