Luke 16:10-13

Jesus said to his disciples: “The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours? No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon.”

Reflection on the gospel reading: Jesus in today’s gospel discusses what has been given to us from God in trust for one another. We can love God and maintain an attitude of freedom toward our material possessions, or we can love our material possessions and be unavailable for God. Our possessions are for the building up of the kingdom; the gospel challenges us to consider what is most important to us.

Spiritual reading: May you come to accept your longing as divine urgency. May you know the urgency with which God longs for you. (John O’Donohue)
