Guard what has been entrusted to you.

Morning: Psalm 107:33-43; 108:1-6; Isaiah 66:1-6; I Timothy 6:6-21
Evening: Psalm 33; Mark 12:35-44
My old high school’s motto was: “Quod Tuum Tene.” They said it meant, “What you have, hold.”  It sounded selfish to me, ungenerous.  It really means: “Guard what has been entrusted to you.”  All that we build is only a shadow of creation’s glory. “Too low they build who build beneath the stars,” wrote Edward Young.  Riches carry no lasting value. Yet humility, right action, the search for God, faith, love, endurance and gentleness are a sacred trust. A poor widow’s generosity with the little she has matters more than large gifts given by us who can easily afford them.
