Jesus said, “Follow Me … No one who puts his hand to the plow and then looks back is fit for the Kingdom of God.”  – Lk 9:59, 62

Reflection. St. Francis of Assisi left his family behind.  His father wanted him to take over the family business, but he answered a higher calling.  He said, “First things first.”  He gave God the best he had.

Prayer. Dear Lord, I give You my life.  Show me how to live it well for You.
