Can't help the poor if I'm one of em!

‎"I cant help the poor if I'am one of em" - Jay Z. So I guess everyone made it through friday. Now not everyone was freakin out but some people were, but what if the world really was going to end? Would you be freaking out or not? Would you be attached to your life here? Or would you be able to let it go?
See I think a lot of people don't realize that it is a good thing to have wealth, without it its a lot harder to help others. That having wealth is a sin, and yea it can lead you to sin, but if you have wealth and are ok with giving it away at any moment then its not bad. The reason being that your not attached to it and treat it as your God rather you use it to help others. 
So if the world were to end would you be willing to give up everything you have? Can you give up the things you have now to help others? This week give some money in the collection box at mass. It can be tough but if you can give a little then you can give alot. Remember its the season of giving :) Will you Take the Challenge?

Mountains and Valleys

The world is filled with mountains and valleys, things that are built up and things that are deep. Making it hard to travel. People are also like this. Some people built them selves up while others tear themselves down. But also like the world these peoples hearts are hard for the Lord to travel. 
People build themselves up by building their egos and crushing others. While others tear themselves down, hiding behind a veil of untrue humility. 
In order for the Lord to easily pass into our lives we must level our mountains and fill in our valleys. Humility doesn't mean tearing our selves down. It means realizing our God given talents, rejoicing in these talents, and bringing people to God with these talents. This is also the second week of our journey of Advent to Christmas. This week think and utilize ways to bring others on your journey towards Christ. Will you Take the Challenge?
