August 19 Stewardship Reflection

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Watch carefully then how you live, not as foolish persons but as wise…” (EPHESIANS 5:15)
 
A wise person recognizes that all we have and all we are comes from God.  A wise person thanks God continually throughout the day for all His many blessings.  A wise person realizes that God has blessed us for a reason and that He wants us to help Him build His kingdom of earth.

Event Date: August 19, 2018

August 26 Stewardship Reflection

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
“If it does not please you to serve the Lord, decide today whom you will serve…As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”   (JOSHUA 24:15)
 
When we commit to serve the Lord, we must be willing to become a partner in the work of the Lord.  A partner is a person who invests time in prayer every day, joyfully participates in charitable works and generously supports the parish and Church mission.  If we say we serve God, we must actually do something and not merely talk about it!

Event Date: August 26, 2018
Expiration Date:

(For September 1-2 bulletin)

September 2 Stewardship Reflection

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Be doers of the word and not hearers only…”  (JAMES 1:22)
 
It’s easy to understand the definition of stewardship.  The hard part is living it!  What do you do to live God’s word?  Do you share your time in prayer with God?   Do you use your talent to help those in need?  Are you generous with your financial resources?  If not, what are you waiting for?

Event Date: September 2, 2018
Expiration Date: 
September 3, 2018

 

(For September 8-9 bulletin)

September 9 Stewardship Reflection

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?”   (JAMES 2:5)
 
What is more important – being rich in faith or rich in possessions?  Society teaches us that possessions are most important.  God teaches a different lesson.  When we are rich in faith, we keep God first in all things and realize that material things really don’t matter and that it’s more important to share with those who have less.

Event Date: September 9, 2018
Expiration Date: 
September 10, 2018

 

(For September 15-16 bulletin)

September 16 Stewardship Reflection

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” (MARK 8:34)
 
When we truly believe that all we have is a gift from God, then we must be willing to give up some things so that we can share our blessings as God intended.  Living a stewardship lifestyle means not only being responsible for our own life, but the lives of others as well.

Event Date: September 16, 2018
Expiration Sate: 
September 17, 2018

 

(For September 22-23 bulletin)

September 23 Stewardship Reflection

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” (MARK 9:35)
 
Jesus teaches us that we are called to serve one another.  Sacrifice is not a word that many people like to hear.  We think it means that we must give up something that we want.  However, the literal meaning of sacrifice is “to make holy,” from the words “sacer” = sacred and “facere” = to make.   In other words, we make our lives holy by sharing our gifts in the service of God.

Event Date: September 23, 2018
Expiration Date: 
September 24, 2018

 

(For September 29-30 bulletin)

September 30 Stewardship Reflection

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.”  (MARK 9:41)
 
Does your life reflect the life of Jesus?  Remember, we were made in His image.  We tend to forget this.  When others see you, do they see the face of Jesus?  When you look at others, do you see the face of Jesus in them?

Event Date: September 30, 2018
