Just A Cup Of Water

Accept with humility his words which are also from Me. Let your fervent desire to share in My work of Salvation continue to burn in your soul with great humility. You will not lose your reward, everlasting happiness. Just serve Me with all your strength.” (Jesus) (August 28, 1962)

Today’s Readings: And whoever gives only a cup of cold water
to one of these little ones to drink
because the little one is a disciple—
amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.” (Matthew 10)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, today the Gospel from Matthew  and the Epistle from Romans are about dying to ourselves so that we will rise with You. About our priorities- You first then family because we can only really love them perfectly with Your love. About carrying our crosses and following You. Lord we want to be all in but sometimes we lose our way about what that really means and what that looks like. We may well feel that we are failing in sharing in Your work of salvation in our everyday lives as the world seems to be moving further and further away from Your truth. But You tell us something interesting- that even if we give a cup of cold water to someone in need- in other words the little acts of kindness done with great love, we will not lose our reward. Because as much as we may want to do big things to turn the ship of our world around, it is You who are still on the throne and still in control! You want us to share with You our desire and love for souls- pure intentions not great works! And You tell us to serve You with all of our strength no matter how weak we may be because You turn every act of love into an ocean of Mercy for the whole world when united to Your Saving Cross!
