Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind."
__Matthew 22:37
FOR REFLECTION:“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” MATTHEW 22:21
Everything that we are and everything we have belongs to God. We aren’t “owners” of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts God has given each of us. All God is asking is that we give back a portion of what He gave us. This is the essence of stewardship. God should be our first priority in everything. All else comes second, especially our money.
