10-20-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 20, 2014
Jesus told the story of a man who reached the pinnacle of worldly success and then sat down and said to himself, “Now as for you, you have so many good things stored up for many years, rest, eat, drink, be merry!”’
But God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’  Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.”  Lk 12:13-21

What is it that really matters in life, beloved?  Is it wealth, or power, or beauty?  Is it security, or health, or savings?  Jesus says it’s none of those, if they’re only done for our own personal benefit.  What really matters is what we do with these lives for others.  And that can be as simple as being a good employer.  Being a friend to someone in need.  Supporting a worthy cause.  Or offering a helping hand.  The reward for these kinds of acts of compassion is not only the internal feeling of good will, but they will even reflect themselves in our worldly success as well.

That’s being Jesus to others.
And that’s what matters to God!
