This week we will continue our discussion on building wealth in the kingdom of God with a reflection on the story of Lazarus given to us in the Gospel of Luke and advice offered by the apostle Paul to one of his protégés in his first letter to Timothy.
Last week, we talked about using the resources at our disposal in this world as well as the gift of forgiveness that we can offer our neighbor so that we might facilitate better relationships with God and those around us. These actions help build true treasures in heaven that won’t disappear. Join us next Sunday as we consider the importance of being conscientious in our stewardship of the blessings we have received from God and reflect on the specific traits that Paul advised Timothy to cultivate. By ordering our lives in this way, we set ourselves up to experience more deep, lasting joy that is much more worthwhile than the fleeting moments of happiness that often drive our actions.
