Gospel: Luke 12:13–21
"Be on your guard against all kinds of greed." (cf. Luke 12:15)
It is inevitable for man to strive for great wealth in order for him to afford the comforts of life. But Jesus, in today’s Gospel, reminds us that even though wealth is necessary for us to satisfy our daily needs, it is not the one that could give us eternal life. With this, He is also calling us to be on guard against every kind of greed that our hearts may encounter upon striving for wealth.
May we be like Mother Mary, thankful and contented with the grace of God. Amen.
