I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for Friday November 8, Thirty-first Week in Ordinary Time, Luke 16:1-8

+ + + + + + +
My Reflection:
The steward in our gospel is creative enough to devise a scheme to ensure his survival after he is out of job. He discounted all the debtors payment, what a clever move but the downside is he did this to ensure only his survival.

What if he did the same but with the end in mind that he was doing this so that the debtors would know how generous and friendly is his master?  So that when his master eventually comes to visit his debtors they would warmly welcome him. But he did this for his own benefit.

This is a very good reminder for all of us who profess to follow Jesus. Who are presently doing the mission of Christ or who are aspiring to evangelize the teachings of Jesus. Let us do it not to serve our selfish ends; let us rather always do evangelization to serve the purpose of Christ. So that people will know Christ more than they will know us.

Preachers and other sharers for Jesus come and go in this world. But the teachings about Christ that we’ve taught them will remain forever in their hearts. And they may even pay it forward for as long as we evangelized Jesus and not ourselves.

How are we doing our evangelization so far? Do we always carry and advance the goodness of Jesus?
