Wednesday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time

St. Luke the Evangelist presents many “stewardship parables” that we are to apply to ourselves. The message is simple: we are entrusted with much (such as the gift of faith, the Eucharist, the Holy Spirit) and we will be judged accordingly.

The Lord is demanding; expecting much of us so we have to make a decision about the way we live our life and whether we use or squander what we have been given. We can ignore God until our death but it is better we face the reality that we are all going to have to give an account of our lives to God whether we want to or not.

What does God want above all? …Our fidelity.

We actually know what God wants. We just need to be faithful and be generous in doing the right thing. Then, in all simplicity, we can “approach God in complete confidence, through our faith in Christ Jesus.”
