St. Angela Reflection
"And in God one has all wealth."
(Rule: Chapter on Poverty)
Scripture tells us in Matthew 6:33 “seek first the kingdom of God and all these other things of yours will be set before you.” In this month of giving thanks we are reminded that if we put our trust and hope in the providence of God, all we need will become available to us. The key word here is NEED not WANT.
God’s desire for us is to develop a sense of gratitude for what we have been given and to use our “gifts” in extending the Kingdom. God only wants what is good for us and God has our joy and welfare at heart.
Let us take time this Thanksgiving to express our gratitude to God for all we have been given as pure “gift.” Where your heart is, there is God. “And in God one has all wealth.”
