Monday of the Twenty- nineth Week in Ordinary time ‘c’

LK 12:13-21

Not too long ago, someone was telling me about a certain priest who was excited about his upcoming retirement. He had a place in Florida, and so he was looking forward to that time when he will be able to spend more time in warmer weather. Sadly, that priest died one year after he retired. He didn’t enjoy his retirement for too long. We don’t know what the future will bring. We may have all kinds of plans for the future. We may try saving some money and look forward to our retirement, just like that priest -- but still, the future is uncertain. The only certain thing is that one day each one of us will leave this world. And so, Jesus reminds us today that more than anything else, we should save and store up the things that matter to God, so that when we die, we will have a treasure in Heaven. And the thing that matter to God are our prayers, our good way of living, our good example to others, our good deeds, and our love for God and our neighbor. “You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong? Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.”
