Stewardship thought for the week
October 29, 2017 – 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.” – MATTHEW 22:37
Do you put other “gods” before God? Is your love of money, power, status or some personal possession greater than your love for God? Do you really recognize that everything you have and everything you are is a gift from God? The good news – it’s not too late to put God first in your life in all things.
