The gospel message is not about playing economically dead. Rather, it teaches the opposite. Use well, wisely, and cleverly, our gifts and talents. Be shrewd how we do what we do.
As the church speaks on social justice and human rights issues, Luke’s Gospel story challenges us to be smart, as well as shrewd, in how we teach and spread the Gospel. We are challenged to go into the streets and work for the betterment of others, not self - and we should begin right here in our faith community. So, we bring Jesus Christ to our lives and the lives of others. Today, Luke reminds us to be clever and smart in how we do it!
