REWARD FOR OBEDIENCE
?If you cannot be trusted with elusive wealth, who will trust you with lasting? ? Luke 16:11
P S A L M
G O S P E L
9 I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth, so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. 10 The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. 11 If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? 12 If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours? 13 No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.? 14 The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all these things and sneered at him. 15 And he said to them, ?You justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your hearts; for what is of human esteem is an abomination in the sight of God.?

OF MONEY AND CHOICES
If yesterday?s Gospel surprised and confused us, today?s passage shocks. Did we read correctly? ?Use money,? Jesus says,? tainted as it is, to win you friends...? Does this not contradict the next words of Jesus, ?No servant can serve two masters?You cannot serve both of God and of money??
Lord, my life is not as undivided as it should be. While I want to serve You, I am also very much attached to material things. I feel the struggle between You and money inside me. Today?s Gospel helped me to see clearer. It helped me to see the danger of serving material things instead of using them for Your Kingdom. Keep me aware of this,
St. Martin of Tours, bishop confessor, pray for us.
