SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

The prophet Jeremiah minces no words in today’s first reading: “Thus says the LORD: Cursed is the one who trusts in human beings … whose heart turns away from the LORD.” And the prophet’s “beatitude” resembles that of Jesus’ teaching in today’s Gospel reading when he proclaims: “Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD.” Good stewards understand that what the world values is not consistent with Gospel values. They realize that God has placed in their midst all the gifts, charisms, and resources needed to bring Christ to a world desperately in need of his loving presence. But to exercise good stewardship over God’s gifts takes a great deal of trust. How does our stewardship reflect our trust in the Lord? What did we do today to give others hope in Christ Jesus?
