Daily Mass: Giving up everything for Jesus. Catholic Inspiration

St. Peter’s words “we have given up everything and followed you” can inspire us to consider how we offer our lives for the Lord.  Recognizing that everything we have comes from God, we begin to see ourselves as stewards, not owners, who offer our lives for the glory of the one who made us.
