Families and the Gospel

Jesus was exasperated when he scolded:  “Why do you put Me to the test?”  It is natural for children to test parents; this is how they learn and how we teach limits, rules and values.  Be like Jesus in today’s gospel; He was firm, honest and direct.

“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” 


                                                           Matthew 22: 21


Everything 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.
