My Gospel Reflections for Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time September 19: Luke 16:1-13

My Reflections:
At the end of our lives there shall be an accounting if we were good stewards of the gifts that God has entrusted us. Some of us of course will be able to pass God’s accounting some of us will also fail for we keep to ourselves the gifts that God has entrusted us.

We all know the destination of those who will pass and those who will fail. This is what Jesus wants us all to know: In His perfect time we will be made to account on what we have done with the things that He has entrusted us.

In our gospel there is this very complacent steward he was sleeping on his job so to speak. So the rich man removed him from his stewardship, it was to late for him to change his negative ways for the master had made the decision already to remove him.

Let us think of the many gifts that God has entrusted us what are we doing with it now, are we still keeping it to ourselves? Jesus wants us to share whatever talents or material possession that we have because we are mere stewards of it. Let us not anymore wait for the day when God will call our attention to account for everything that He has given us.

Let us all be proactive by doing something positive to our fellowmen; especially to those who are poor in spirit and material wealth. Let us not look down on them let us be friends with them and let us help them in the best way we can.

By doing so, we become proactive and prepared for HIS judgment on us. …
