THOUGHTS ON STEWARDSHIP AS A WAY OF LIFE

LET  GOD’S  GRACE  GUIDE  YOU

But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father…” Matthew 5: 44-45

“For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”     Matthew 5: 20

The scribes and Pharisees lived according to the letter of the law, and they used this to elevate themselves above the other people. Jesus is clear – it’s the love that you have in your heart that will get you to heaven. Simply following church rules out of obligation, not love, does not put you on the path to heaven. Attending Mass on Sunday and then gossiping about a fellow parishioner on the parking lot is an example of a modern day Pharisee.
