March 1 Stewardship Reflection

1st Sunday of Lent

“It is written: The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.”    MATTHEW 4:10

Tempted between the riches and power of this world and service to God, Jesus chose service to His Father.  If we wish to truly follow Jesus, we, too, must decide to turn away from worldly power and riches and put God at the center of our lives.  Lent is our time to prune ourselves of earthly things.  Ask God how he is calling you to serve.


Event Date:  March 1, 2020

Expiration Date:  March 2, 2020

 

(For March 7-8 bulletin)

March 8 Stewardship Reflection

2nd Sunday of Lent

“Go forth from the land of your kinsfolk and from your father's house to a land that I will show you.”  GENESIS 12:1

God calls all of us to leave behind our old ways and to follow Him, placing our complete trust in Him.  Some of the old ways that we may have to struggle to leave behind might be materialism, selfishness and greed.  Yet God promises to show us a new land and a better way to live.  Remember what St. Teresa of Calcutta said, “God does not call us to be successful, God calls us to be faithful.”

Event Date:  March 8, 2020

Expiration Date:  March 9, 2020

 

(For March 14-15 bulletin)

March 15 Stewardship Reflection

3rd Sunday of Lent

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again.”   JOHN 4:13

Jesus reminds us that material things, even something as basic as water, can never satisfy us for long.  When we build our lives around material possessions we always want more.  True Joy and Peace only comes when we follow Jesus; when we become more “God-centered” and less “self-centered”.

Event Date:  March 15, 2020

Expiration Date:  March 16, 2020

 

(For March 21-22 bulletin)

March 22 Stewardship Reflection

4th Sunday of Lent

“Not as man sees does God see, because man sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart.” 1Samuel 16:7

How often do we invest our time, talent and treasure in creating an appearance that does not matter at all to God?  We strive to impress with our clothing, home, career, possessions, car and other marks of distinction.  But none of these illusions of greatness will impress God.  Instead, He will look into our hearts to see how much we loved Him, how much we loved others and how we showed that love by the way we used our time, talent and treasure here on earth.

Event Date: March 22, 2020

Expiration Date:  March 23, 2020

 

(For March 28-29 bulletin)

March 29 Stewardship Reflection

Fifth Sunday of Lent

“Jesus said to her, 'Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?”   JOHN 11:40

Many of us say that we believe in God.  We go to church on Sunday.  We volunteer for events at our parish.  But when life gets hard, the pressure is on, when things aren't going our way, do we really believe, do we really put our trust in the Lord?  When we live a life of gratitude, being thankful for the gifts we have been given, we really do see that God is providing all that we need.  It opens our hearts to see God's active presence in our daily lives.
