October 27 Stewardship Reflection

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“…for whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”    LUKE 18:14
Pride and ego is the root cause of most of our sins.  Thinking your time is so valuable, your talent is better than anyone else and your money gives you status is another way of making those things “gods” before God.  Remember all those gifts were God-given.  Instead we should be humbled by God’s abundant generosity and our hearts should overflow with gratitude. 

Event Date: October 27, 2019
Expiration Date: October 28, 2019

 

(For November 2-3 bulletin)

November 3 Stewardship Reflection

31st Sunday in Ordinary Time
“But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, ‘Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor, and if I extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over.’”   LUKE 19:8
We are all called to gratefully give back to the Lord in proportion to the blessings we have been given.  This means everyone isn’t called to give the same amount, but is called to give equal sacrifice.  No amount is too small or insignificant! Open your heart, how is God calling you to be more generous with your financial resources and possessions?

November 10 Stewardship Reflection

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.”         2 THESSALONIANS 2:16-17
There are two important lessons here.  First, we are called to be generous with our encouragement and hope.  As God shows us mercy, we must be merciful to others.   Second, joy is contagious!  The joy we receive from doing good works not only strengthens us, it encourages others as well.  Share the joy of living your faith whenever you can.

(For November 16-17 bulletin)

November 17 Stewardship Reflection

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
“…Rather, we wanted to present ourselves as a model for you, so that you might imitate us.”  2 THESSALONIANS 3:9
Most people who live a grateful and generous lifestyle don’t go around bragging about it.  But through their actions and words, others do take notice.  They notice because of the joy and peace that results and other people desire this in their own life.  Know that the way you live your life may be the only interaction others have with our Catholic faith.

(For November 23-24 bulletin)

November 24 Stewardship Reflection

Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
“….giving thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to share in the inheritance of the holy ones in light.”
  COLOSSIANS 1:12
God wants us to be happy!  Instead of looking at the Ten Commandments as being restrictive and telling us what we can’t do, look at them as guides for living a joy-filled and peaceful life.  Most of our problems arise when we put our own needs first or spend most of our time trying to acquire “things”.  Try putting God first in all things instead.  Ask Him how He wants you to use your gifts.
