28th Sunday in Ordinary TimeOctober 11, 2015
HOW WE LOVE
I want you take just a moment and consider the following questions: When you go to bed at night and get up in the morning, what do you think about? When you have coffee with a friend, what do you talk about? When you have free time (and we all do!), who or what gets your attention? After you have paid all your bills, where does the money go?
This is to ask: what or who do you love? Not by the words off your lips, but by your actions?
I ask this, because this Gospel is not about wealth; rather it is about love. What must I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus answers, you must love God and your neighbor above all else.
Money wasn’t the rich man’s problem because money is bad. Believe me – money is good and necessary. But for this man – it was what he loved most.
What do you love most? And do your actions support that?
