Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Wis. 18:6-9 | Ps. 33:1, 13, 18-22 | Heb. 11:1-2, 8-19 | Lk. 12:32-48

The message that seems to come loudly and clearly from today’s readings is that of faithfulness.  Jesus talks about the person who can be trusted because he/she is faithful to all the tasks that are placed before them.  The servant is one who continues to act as the master  taught him/her whether the master is in or not.  We all remember times when we asked someone to do something.  We took time to explain the process and make sure our expectations were clear.  We leave and expect to come back to find everything as we had hoped.  Our lives are blessed when we do leave and return and find everything in order.  We are not happy when things are not.

This is the situation that Jesus is talking about but more importantly Jesus is talking about the manner in which we carry out His teaching and how we treat others.  Those who carry out His teaching faithfully will be rewarded.  The second reading from Hebrews confirms this through the example of the lives of Abraham and Sarah.

Pray with this Gospel.  Where is God calling you through this reading?  How might you improve your faithfulness?
