Enough manna for the day, and no more

The opening prayer at the monthly inter-novitiate meeting today was lead by a novice of the Oblates of St. Francis De Sales.

The scripture was Luke 12:22-31. And this reading from St. Francis De Sales.
Let us be firmly resolved to serve God with our whole heart and life. Beyond that, let us have no care about tomorrow. Let us think only of living today well, and when tomorrow comes, it also will be today and we can think about it then. In all this we must have great trust and resignation to God's providence. We must make provision for enough manna for the day, and no more. Let us not doubt that God will provide more for us tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and all the days of our lives.
Appropriate and timely!
