Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Proverbs 30:5-9
Psalm 119:29, 72, 89, 101, 104, 163
Luke 9:1-6

A reflection on today's Scripture:

We are called to love and to be loved.

In Part VI of The Book of Proverbs, it says:
Two things I ask of you, deny them not to me before I die:
Put falsehood and lying far from me,
give me neither poverty nor riches;
provide me only with the food I need.
(Proverbs 30:7-9)

We are given what we need, according to Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who said, "There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation—than for bread." As it was explained in The Book of Proverbs, it is important for us to be open to God so that we may receive what we need and share with others what we are given. We are to simply share the gifts God has given us with all of the people we meet throughout our everyday lives

When Jesus sent out the twelve apostles, He didn't give them fancy gifts nor did He want them to bring anything with them. All that He gave them was authority to cast out demons by prayer and fasting, to heal the sick and the command to proclaim the Good News (see Luke 9:1-2).

Jesus not only asked the disciples to proclaim the Good News, but to live it. "Take nothing for the journey, neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money. . . ." (Luke 9:3)
