The Right Stuff: Reflection on Luke 12:13-31

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost


More and more our lives are defined by “stuff”… getting stuff, keeping stuff, always wanting more and better stuff. Whether it’s a bigger flat screen or a smaller smart phone, there is always more stuff out there that upon attainment will finally make us happy. Meanwhile attics, basements, landfills and junkyards overflow with last year’s gotta-have-it stuff.


Charity, living in the love of Christ, is never a matter of delivering donations at arms-length while we hold our noses. Witnessing Christ’s love, as Christ would love…that’s the right stuff. Living in the love of Christ means ending each day rich in grace; prepared to give our lives back to God when he calls; humbly, gratefully hoping that the barns of our souls are overflowing with the right stuff.
