STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION FOR 24TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Everything I have is yours.” (Luke 15:31)
Our Heavenly Father gives us everything, including the chance to share in His eternal kingdom. Yet, like the Prodigal Son we are often lured away by the materialism of our society. Do we really want to turn our backs on all that God offers in exchange for a material wealth that has no lasting value?
