Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Serving Jesus
  • 1 Timothy 6:2-12
  • Psalm 49:6-10,17-20
  • Luke 8:1-3

Most of us have come to this journey in the Lord because we first sought a healing or an answer to a problem. Our loving Father in his mercy and grace healed us and delivered us from our past addictions and sinful ways. Now that we are followers of Christ what can we give back to him? Can we partake in his mission to others? It is clearly shown in today’s Gospel proclamation how the disciples travelled through towns and villages with Jesus and some women assisted them with their resources. In today’s hectic world we may not be able to travel and preach the Gospel leaving our families and children, but we can truly serve in many ways. We too can first and foremost intercede for many missions carried through the church, and share our resources and talents in small ways. We can also share the Word by distributing the Word among our friends, sharing it online and helping the needy and less fortunate. We are to be faithful in our jobs and do our best to see that others are benefitted through it all.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank you for making us your disciples. May we share what we have so that your name is glorified. Amen.
