Is God #1?: 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Listen to the homily here.
Taught high school, junior high students
· What are your favorite things?
· 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
· What is the number?
· But watch this…
· Put a 1 before all the zeros…you have a big number!
“No one can serve two masters…He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
· Where is God in your life?
· Is God #1 in your life?
· How much time to you offer to God?
Jesus then said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.”
· God is our Creator and gives providence—everything we need
The birds, the grass, what we eat, what we drink, what we wear
· “Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. Bet seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.”
So where will you put God in your list?
