February 24 Stewardship Reflection

Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Times
“But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend without expecting anything back.” (LUKE 6:35)
Easier said than done, right? But, if we are to imitate Christ, most of us need to practice mercy and compassion more frequently. Start with the little daily annoyances that we experience, the unkind word or hateful glance we receive. Instead of plotting revenge on that person, try saying a quick prayer for that person. Mercy and compassion will put us on the path to holiness.

March 3 Stewardship Reflection

Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
“A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit.”  (LUKE 6:43)
Are you using your God-given gifts in the way God intended?  Do you compare yourself to others and complain about what you don’t have instead of being thankful for what you do have?  God gives each of us unique gifts and a unique plan.  Listen to how God is calling you to use your gifts, to bear good fruit, for the glory of His name. 

Event Date: March 3, 2019

Expiration Date: March 4, 2019

March 10 Stewardship Reflection

First Sunday of Lent
“I have now brought you the first fruits of the products of the soil which you, O Lord, have given to me.”  (DEUTERONOMY 26:10)
This line from the Old Testament offers two challenges.  First, do you give to God from your “first fruits”, the best that you have to offer, or do you give from what is leftover?  Second, do you recognize that everything you have has been given to you by God?  Ask God for a grateful and generous heart, every day, in all circumstances. 

Event Date: March 10, 2019

Expiration Date: March 11, 2019

 

(For March 16-17 bulletin)

March 17 Stewardship Reflection

Second Sunday of Lent
“I am the Lord who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as a possession.”    (GENESIS 15:7)
Just as the Lord gave Abraham, Moses and the Israelites a land to possess, He has also given each of us a home.  Whether your home is grand or humble, it is a gift from God.  Abraham prepared a great sacrifice to the Lord in gratitude for the home God gave him.  How do you show your gratitude to God for the home He has given you?  Do you make a sacrifice of any kind?  Do you return any of your finances to God, investing equally in your eternal home just as you invest in your earthly home?

Event Date: March 17, 2019

Expiration Date: March 18, 2019

 

(For March 23-24 bulletin)

March 24 Stewardship Reflection

Third Sunday of Lent
“He said to the gardener, ‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none.’” (LUKE 13:7)
We can all be like the barren fig tree at times.  Do you cling to what you have or do you generously share with others?   How will you respond when God asks you what you have done with all the gifts He has given you?  Remember, not only are we called to be generous, we are called to develop and nurture our gifts and return with increase.

Event Date: March 24, 2019

Expiration Date: March 25, 2019

 

(For March 30-31 bulletin)

March 31 Stewardship Reflection

Fourth Sunday of Lent
“No longer was there manna for the Israelites, who that year ate of the yield of the land of Canaan.”   (JOSHUA 5:12)
Over the forty years that the Israelites journeyed through the desert, God provided them with manna to eat.  As soon as they were able to enjoy the fruits of the Promised Land the manna ceased.  Likewise, God’s blessings to us may change over the years but it is important to trust that God will always provide us with all that we need.
