30th Sunday of Ordinary Time

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.

27th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Stewardship thought for the week

October 8, 2017 – 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

“The stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone…” – MATTHEW 21:42

 

Jesus was the corner stone and He was rejected by the religious and political leaders of his day, as well as ordinary citizens. Living a stewardship lifestyle may cause you to be “rejected” by others in today’s society. For example, saying grace before a meal in a restaurant may attract some strange looks from some. But to others it is sign that God is alive and well!
