Be available

“How do we become ‘good and faithful servants’ (cf. Mt 25:21)? As a first step, we are asked to be available. A servant daily learns detachment from doing everything his own way and living his life as he would. Each morning he trains himself to be generous with his life and to realize that the rest of the day will not be his own, but given over to others.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Would you describe yourself as a generous person? Why or why not? How do you make yourself available to others? What do you find it hardest to let go of, for example the need for financial security, drive to be successful in business, or desire to be well-liked or famous? When do you find it easiest to work with others or let someone else decide how things are done?
