Twenty-Fifth Sunday In Ordinary Time

“You cannot serve God and mammon.”  This is a difficult saying for us, for it is tempting to think that we can be good disciples while also aiming to enjoy riches. Jesus makes the point that we need to be aware of where we focus our thoughts.  Is our vision aimed on God or an idol?  As we deepen our faith commitment, we devote more of our lives to God’s ways.  It may take a lifetime to be completely in service to God, but we need to keep that central to our being.
