THEME: STEWARDS ARE ALSO NEEDED
The spread of the Gospel message requires not just preachers but also stewards, it requires in addition to the preachers those who will cater for the daily needs of the preachers. This is the clear cut example we see today in the Gospel reading.
Jesus and his Apostles received support from some women Who took care of them out of their means. Nobody is so rich that he has nothing to receive and no one is so poor that he has nothing to give. Each of them has received something from the Lord and in gratitude they supported him with their means.
In varied ways we too have enjoyed the blessings of the Lord through the Church, we must support the works of Our Lord in his church without grumbling or even a feeling of coercion. Freely we have received from the Lord and freely we must give. We do not need to be threatened with the pain of hell before we could give to the house of God. The Lord needs our spiritual and material support to advance and spread the good news. Do not be passive in the work of God. Be active.
PRAYER: Help us, Lord, to aid the spread of the Gospel through our material and spiritual support. Amen!
GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY WEEKEND!
