STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: In today’s Gospel the people in Jesus’ own hometown were very upset by his teaching. The stewardship message is challenging and at times can make us feel a little uncomfortable. Our own friends and family may even question our commitment to this way of life. Yet, stewardship is exactly what is needed in a society that worships complexity, busyness, and the excessive accumulation of material goods. When questioned will you have the courage to take the risk of being a prophetic disciple who lives a steward’s lifestyle?
