In today’s first reading, we see that “God is able to make every grace abundant for [us], so that in all things, always having all [we] need, [we] may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8). We are encouraged to be mindful of the abundance of grace in our lives so that, in turn, we can do good works for our family, friends, fellows in recovery, and those we meet every day. And by serving we will experience the Lord’s overflowing grace.
As we continue on our recovery journey, we discover how our Lord is leading us in service. We have all that we need when we follow Him who gives us every good thing. May we grow in our practice of gratitude for God’s abundant grace and for the strength to go wherever He is as we serve others in need of love.
- How is your personal relationship with Jesus, our great Master? How is He calling you to serve where He is today?
- What are some moments of abundant grace in your life for which you are grateful?
