More than a giver of gifts

August 28, 2016 6:00 am

“My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts. Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.” (SIR 3: 17-18)

We know how much easier it is for us to be “a giver of gifts.” The gifts are important; they say something about our relationship, but there is something more than “a giver of gifts”—a true giver of self. With this comes everything.

“Take my yoke upon you, says the Lord, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
