St. Stephen of Hungary
Christ tells the young man, it's not enough to be good. To be 'perfect' one must be extraordinary, doing what others will not.
One more thing: We are doing some home improvement projects and as I find my husband and I discussing what to replace and what to buy, I've observed my kids wanting more stuff too. Some things are necessary and some luxuries, but we need to be clear to our children about what it all means. We've been talking with them more lately about money management and emphasizing the save, share and spend rules, making sure they see us doing the saving and sharing, not just the spending.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for the comforts that you provide for me here on earth. Help me to be of the world, but not in it. Help me to always remember that what I have is for me to share and that I can never out-give you. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Stephen, pray for me.
