STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION – 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
The generosity of being a good steward of your gifts has a positive effect on people, and it is contagious! Good works encourage more good works. Let your light shine! Be careful to recognize that God is working through you and don’t put yourself above the people you have been called to help.
