Can you see yourself giving away your entire inheritance to the poor? Especially if the amount was very large? Saint Porphyry did just that, and began working as a shoemaker to keep a roof over his head and food on his table. Ask the Lord to help you become more generous to those in need.
God, help us to be generous people. Let us share whatever we have with others, confident that good will return to us. (Taken from “Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
