The man in the offal office controls the Executive branch of the government. His party controls both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court leans right, as well. And #BLOTUS still whines about the obstructionist Democrats.
He has been in office for almost a full year. Just what exactly is his definition of making America great again? His tiny legacy, like everything else connected to him is a shameful failure that demonstrates a dangerous lack of morality and an egotistical focus on personal greed.
The Gospel reading for today is Luke 16:1-13. It’s a passage in which Jesus focused on money and how it is handled and used. This passage is especially interesting in light of Ha-Joon Chang’s comments.
Verse 13 is one that is familiar to most of us. It’s a verse oft quoted and even more often ignored by Christian and non-Christians alike.
No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
Wealth is a spiritual issue. That makes it a lifestyle issue.
Our focus is where our heart is. Faithfulness to Christ demands one focus. Wealth requires a different focus. To which are you devoted?
