Serving One Master

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Luke 16:1-13

I know I serve 2 masters. I don’t set out to do that. But I know I do.

I want to put God first. But then I choose myself instead.

I want to be available for others when they need me, but then I choose myself instead.

I watch TV instead of praying.

I talk instead of listening.

I complain instead of speaking life-giving words to another.

I walk away in my own dream world instead of giving the loving hug to another.

I want to put God first. But I sometimes put myself and other things first. I do not want to. I do not mean to. But I do.

The good news is, Jesus knows that. Which is why he tells us these stories and gives us these words.

God knows I need the reminder.

Dear Lord, help me to put You first. Help me to serve only You. Thank you for forgiving me and loving me when I don’t. Amen.
