"Every man, consciously or unconsciously, has in his life a fundamental value, an absolute that determines his whole way of being and living." What is the absolute "God or riches?" God leads man to freedom and life through Of justice that generates sharing and fraternity.Wealth is the result of oppression and exploitation, leading man to slavery and death.We must choose which of the two we want to serve "(1)
GOSPEL SECOND MATHESUS, 6, 24 - 34
To serve God or riches? Where is your heart?. In God or in this world?
These are questions that come against today's text. Matthew, 6, verses 24 through 34:
"No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and mara the other, or he will be faithful to one and despise the other, you can not serve God and riches"
"Look at the birds of the sky: they do not sow, they do not reap, they do not gather in the storehouses, but the Father who is in heaven feeds them, are you not worth more than birds?" (Vs. 26).
The Christian life presupposes a certain detachment from the goods of this world. Goods are necessary for our survival, but can not suffocate our spiritual life. Many people live their entire lives worrying about accumulating wealth, often they do not even enjoy the riches they have made. Other people who did not help build them even fight (heirs for example) for the goods left by the deceased.
The Christian should live thinking about eternity. This life is too short to be struggling with other people for ephemera.
Divine Providence is never lacking for one who TRUST IN GOD FATHER! He does not miss food for the children who struggle for life.
One would ask: why are so many poor in society? Most of the time, it is due to an unjust socioeconomic system, which enslaves the weakest and highly values the dominant oppressive power. Capital always prevails over work. It is so in the capitalist world.
Jesus, proposes a NEW WORLD ORDER: SOCIAL JUSTICE! Better divide the riches and opportunities. The world is dominated by a full-fledged minority who exploit labor.
The greed is so much that capitalism is rapidly leaving for the almost TOTAL AUTOMATION of the means of production.
I ask: what is the future of the workforce? How will the human being survive?
These are questions that do not want to shut up !.
"SEEK IN THE FIRST PLACE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS JUSTICE, AND ALL OF YOU WILL BE ADDING" (idem vs. 33)
How about we seek the conversion of our hearts? By changing the heart of the human being, he will certainly practice JUSTICE on earth.
The greatest problem of the human being is the EGO and the POWER! Vanity, riches, lust, are anti-values that lead to hell souls who do so.
All power comes from God! Power on earth, our rulers should understand, it is HALF to practice SOCIAL JUSTICE and not to massacre people, especially the most fragile.
TO LOVE IS TO SHARE! LEARN TO SHARE LIFE WITH OTHERS. IN SO BEING, WE WILL BE HAPPY!
Let it come down upon You and your whole family, the Blessing of the God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen! Shalom!. Happy and holy Sunday to all!
