Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint Leo
“Reach beyond your limits. Look at the Three Wise Men, who made superhuman sacrifice. They left behind their limitations. (Jesus) (January 1, 1981)
Today’s Readings: And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
For the children of this world
are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
than the children of light.” (Luke 16)
Prayer Meditation- Lord today we hear a parable about the dishonest steward. He was found out and he proceeded to engage in “damage control” to save his place in society. How often we hear about damage control in the news about companies or government figures. Surprisingly, the dishonest steward is praised by his boss and also by You for his prudence. You tell us through Luke’s Gospel that the children of the world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than the children of light. I believe You are showing us that we are to engage in our own form of “damage control” but not as the world would have it but by bringing You a truly contrite and humble heart- to confess our sins and to make reparation by our prayers and sacrifices. To not stay lukewarm to but reach beyond our limits as we offer love for the Love that never lets us go and never lets us down! So let us be creative in our Christian walk in our self- offering to You and others because we will never outdo You in generosity!
