July 19 Stewardship Reflection

“The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed good seed in his field…He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the kingdom.” (Matthew 13:24, 37-38)

As children of God, we are all “good seeds.” We are blessed by God with the potential to accomplish much good in the world. We fulfill God's plan when we spend time in prayer every day, use our skills to help others, and share our financial gifts to help build God's kingdom on earth. Through our example of gratitude and generosity we sow “good seeds” on earth and ultimately help each other get to Heaven!

(For July 25-26 bulletin)

July 26 Stewardship Reflection

“We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Do you really trust God? Do you really believe that God will provide all that you need? Faith is a challenge for everyone at times. Putting our trust in God, in everything we do, in good times and in bad, means that God's plan for our lives may be quite different than what we planned. When one door closes, another one opens. Trust in God, His plan is always better.

August 2 Stewardship Reflection

18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Jesus said to them, 'There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves'.”  -  MATTHEW 14:16

This is what Jesus said right before he fed the five thousand men.  How often do we really place our trust in Jesus when the situation looks grim?  With Jesus, no gift is too small or insignificant when offered with love.  But, we have to do our part. We should trust that Jesus will provide all that we need.  We need to believe that Jesus has a better plan in store for us.

Event Date:  August 2, 2020

Expiration Date:  August 3, 2020

 

(For August 8-9 bulletin)

August 9 Stewardship Reflection

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“He said, “Come”.  Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.”  -  MATTHEW 14:29

When you hear Jesus calling, do you responded immediately and trust that He knows what He's doing?  If so, you are walking on water!  When we say “yes” to Jesus, we feel the power of his presence in our lives.  We can feel the freedom it gives us!  Listen how Jesus is calling you to live the extraordinary life He has intended for you.

Event Date:  August 9, 2020

Expiration Date:  August 10, 2020

 

(For August 15-16 bulletin)

August 16 Stewardship Reflection

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.”  -  ROMANS 11:29

God has a special mission in mind for each of us.  He has given us the gifts we need to accomplish that mission.  We are called to be good stewards by using those gifts to do the work that He has planned for each of us.  If we deny our gifts or fail to use them as God calls us to use them, then some part of His work will be left undone.


Event Date:  August 16, 2020

Expiration Date:  August 17, 2020

 

(For August 22-23 bulletin)

August 23 Stewardship Reflection

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Or who has given the Lord anything that he may be repaid?”  -  ROMANS 11:35

St. Paul reminds us of a central fact of stewardship.  We cannot give the Lord anything - God already owns it all.  God made everything.  All we can do is return a portion of God's many gifts back to Him.  Sincere gratitude for our gifts opens our hearts to joyful generosity!  Through your generous sharing, you just may be the answer to someone's prayer.


Event Date:  August 23, 2020

Expiration Date:  August 24, 2020

 

(For August 29-30 bulletin)

August 30 Stewardship Reflection

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?”  -  MATTHEW 16:26

St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Remember, you are what you are in the eyes of God, and nothing else.”  We often forget this stewardship wisdom when we spend all of our time, talent and treasure to gain more of the world's riches.  We need to set our priorities based on God's values and not the values of the material world.
