Stewardship Reflection

Many think the Sermon on the Mount is the absolute epitome of Jesus’ teachings  It tells us how we are to live our lives and the attitudes we are to have.  Jesus gives a more accurate perspective of Who He is.  He begins the Beatitudes (meaning “blessings”) with “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  In a sense we are all “poor in Spirit.”  We must have the guidance and strength provided to us by the Lord to live in the poverty of spirit, a spirituality of simplicity.      Living God-centered lives is at the very core of stewardship.  Being a disciple of Christ is being a steward of our many gifts and blessings.  Some scholars believe that Jesus may have given this sermon often during His ministry.  The first Christians were fond of quoting and referring to what the Lord said on this occasion.  Jesus provides us with the secret of living a good life.  If we rely on Him and follow Him, we will be blessed. Are you truly living with His message in your heart? (Stewardship Reflections by Catholic Stewardship Consultants, (2022/12/28)
