24th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Stewardship thought for the week

September 17, 2017 – 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

“For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s” – ROMANS 14:8

This is the essence of stewardship – everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God. We aren’t “owners” of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts that God has given us, especially our very own lives. Pray to God, daily, and ask Him how He wants you to use the gifts He has given you.

“You, son of man, I have appointed watchman for the house of Israel.” – EZEKIEL 33:7

Many of us are generous with our gifts. However, how often is our generosity at the minimum level required?  We do just enough or give just enough. Remember, the Lord calls us to be generous with all the gifts He has given us, to grow them and return them with increase.

22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

Stewardship thought for the week

September 3, 2017 – 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.

Total:  $1,883.92                                                   Remember, God can never be outdone in generosity.
