St Charles Borromeo

Philippians 3:17-4:1; Ps 122; Luke 16:1-8

Two different ways of living

Both readings focus on dishonesty. Even the master in the Gospel was dishonest when he accepted the dishonesty of his steward. I think Jesus was saying that if only his disciples were as keen and ingenious in their attempts to attain goodness as the dishonest steward was to attain money and comfort, they would be better people. Our spiritual lives would be more real and effective if we spent as much time on them as we do on our worldly activities. Lord Jesus, help me to stay focused on you.
