Saturday of the Thirty First Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

Lk 16:9-15

Some time ago, when I was confessing my sins, I mentioned to the priest that I am quite strong in fighting off temptations that come my way. But only shortly after the confession, like one day, a week, or maybe a little longer, I started giving in to a small innocent temptation. And that’s how it starts. Soon enough I am exactly where I was before the confession. The priest then told me that we may think that those small little sins are nothing, but they actually lead us to bigger sins. That’s why I must focus not on those big sins, but rather on those smaller ones and stop them right there. For example, if I skipped my prayer once, most likely I would find an excuse to skip it another time, and another, and then I will find some excuse in giving in to another bigger and bigger sin. And when I hear Jesus’ words today, it becomes clear to me that “the person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones.”
