Psalm:

"1 Praise the Lord!

How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying his commands.2 Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.3 They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever.4 Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.5 Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.6 Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered.7 They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.8 They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.9 They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.10 The wicked will see this and be infuriated. They will grind their teeth in anger; they will slink away, their hopes thwarted." -Ps. 112

Proverb:

"A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched."- Pr. 28:25

Prayer:

"Lord Jesus, only begotten Son of God, teach me true generosity. Teach me to serve you as you deserve. To give without counting the cost, to fight heedless of the wound, to labor without seeking rest, to sacrifice myself without thought of any reward, save the knowledge that I have done your will. Amen." St. Ignatius of Loyola

"God gives all that I have- I share God with others."

Practice:

Greed is an uncontrolled desire for more. Identify your areas of greed. Diagnose why you are so susceptible in these areas. With the Spirit’s help, combat one of your areas of greed with a specific act of generosity. Practice a week of generous actions.
