Because I am generous

August 19, 2015 6:00 am

“‘What if I wish to give this last one the same as you? Or am I not free to do as I wish with my own money? Are you envious because I am generous?’ Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.” (MT 20: 14-16)

Our Lord is generous and he wishes “to give the last one the same as you.” It is more difficult for us. We expect some sort of justice. God’s love is not based on our work or generally saying our “doing” but on our “being”, on our relationship with Him, our filiation. And that world, the world of persons,should be more concerned about being a sincere gift of self than how to receive more.

“The word of God is living and effective, able to discern the reflections and thoughts of the heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
