Good Morning! Today we continue with Luke’s Gospel, and find ourselves in chapter 12:13-21. In this passage Jesus is interrupted by a man who is in dispute about his inheritance, and who is also in bondage to greed. Jesus responds with a warning and parable about what happens when we live in a posture of lack and feel we have to fend for ourselves and turn to greed. He invites us to lean into a worldview of abundance, where we steward the life and possessions we have been given by God. As we are approaching the season of Advent approaches, Jesus is inviting us to expect his coming, and to evaluate our lives in light of that. This week is a wonderful opportunity to consider our lives, and what we are looking to for hope, and where we are putting our faith and trust.
