18th Sunday in Ordinary Time
So many things in this world and in our life are simply passing by: when we spend too much of our precious time, energy, and thoughts on them, when we give them more weight than they deserve, it’s like chasing bubbles – some day they will pop and disappear forever, leaving us empty. But Paul challenges us to seek what is above, and Jesus urges us to become rich in what matters to God. We all know what’s really important in life, we know those things that truly last…but those take real work. It’s a lot easier to get distracted by the bubbles. What’s one way this week that you can stop chasing empty things and start investing in those actions that will make you rich in what matters to God?
