10443204_mThere is no holiness without renunciation.  Every day God asks me to engage in spiritual battle to believe.  The temptation for me today is to serve myself.  It is easier to walk past others each day than it is to start with what others seek today.  O God, may I imitate your generosity today.  May I give what I receive.  In Christ, may I have the courage and strength to renounce myself and give to others.
