Scripture Reflection

What student when leaving home to head off to college has their parents drop them off outside their dorm with absolutely nothing?

How many times have you set aside time to watch your favorite t.v. show, but not stopped to make the time for church?

The Gospel reading tells us to give up everything and follow God.  It may seem a bit drastic to give away all that you have, but we could all use a bit of help in clearing the clutter out of our lives.  For some of us that means throwing out the pile of junk we say we will use one day, for others it means giving up squandering our time in front of the t.v., and for the majority of us it means freeing ourselves of worldly things in order to put God first in our lives.  I can’t count the number of times I’ve said that I’m too tired to pray, or the hours I’ve spent watching a movie that I’ve seen a number of times before just because it is something to do.  We’re all guilty of putting things before God at times, or almost all of the time, but to stop it you have to decide to change your ways.  You can start by canceling your date with your t.v. and making better plans.
