Giving From The Heart

“The spiritual life can be lived in as many ways as there are people. What is new is that we have moved from the many things to the kingdom of God. What is new is that we are set free from the compulsions of our world and have set our hearts on the only necessary thing. What is new is that we no longer experience the many things, people, and events as endless causes for worry, but begin to experience them as the rich variety of ways in which God makes his presence known to us.”

– Making All Things New by Henri J. M. Nouwen

 

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
– II Corinthians 9:8 (N.I.V.)

“The more we lack everything the more we resemble Jesus crucified. The more we cling to the cross, the closer do we embrace Jesus who is nailed to it. Every cross is a gain, for every cross unites us to Jesus. I should possess no more and nothing better than Jesus had at Nazareth, and I should rejoice rather to have less than more. At every moment I should live as though that day I should die a martyr’s death.. Only one thing is necessary: that is to do at every moment what is most pleasing to Jesus.”
– Meditations by Charles de Foucauld
