It is better to give than to receive - Daily Bible Reflections June 23,2015

“Let there be no strife between you and me.... Is not the whole land at your disposal? “ – Genesis 13:8-9
       Father Abraham (Abram) is a model and study not only of faith but also of generosity. When he left Ur, present-day southern Iraq, with his father, Terah, they brought along his nephew, Lot, son of his brother, Haran. It was the start of his call to migrate to the Promised Land.
       As part of their journey there, they passed by Egypt where they acquired livestock, tents and wealth. Between uncle and nephew were possessions so numerous they could not dwell together. Quarrels arose between their herdsmen. Abram, out of generosity and despite seniority in age and filial position, offered to let Lot choose where he wanted to live. The latter chose the well-watered Jordan plain. This was situated near Sodom and Gomorrah. We all know what happened later.
       Generous and humble Abram, on the other hand, was prospered by the Lord where he stayed. His descendants, including us, as promised, are blessed by God. Grace Princesa (grprincesa@yahoo.com)
Reflection: It is better to give than to receive.
Lord, let me always give because I know I will always receive Your blessings.
St. John Fisher, pray for us.
