In today’s world it is so easy to become like the rich man even in our poverty. Even what little we think we have can look like an abundance to others who have so much less. It is easy to give from our leftovers. It is easy to write a check or send money. However, people less fortunate than we need recognition and love just as much as we do. Let us pray for one another that we will have the courage to act and live as Jesus did. He got involved in the lives of others and made a difference.
