September 25, 2022 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Amos 6:1a, 4-7 • 1 Timothy 6:11-16 • Luke 16:19-31
“Lay hold of eternal life, to which you were called…” -1 Tim 6: 12
What do we live for in this life? Most of us live for today and tomorrow, and maybe
the next day. But what about heaven? Do we ever think about heaven? What will it be
like? How do we get there? We have to look at the choices we make each day. Are we
making choices in our life that will lead to life? The Gospel today talks about a rich
man who only took care of himself. His choices did not lead him to everlasting life.
Let us take a look at our own lives and decide what choices are helping us get closer to
God, and which choices are steering us away.
Pray together: Dear Lord, we want to be with you in your kingdom. Please help us to keep our hearts set on that goal and to make choices in our lives that will help us achieve it.
Discuss together: How often do I think about heaven? Am I making choices to help me get there?
