Now the end of the commandment is
charity out of a pure heart, and a
good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.
Am I giving with expectation of return? Let me be clear
about the Source of my gift and the gratitude which moves me to give.
Today my goal is a heart full of faith and a clear conscience.
Lord God, I confess the times lately when my caring for others has been
motivated by a wish for attention or approval rather than by my faith in you.
Help me to return to you with clarity of purpose.
