Not Said by Jesus Sunday: 10 Talents
This week's Sunday Gospel, got me thinking about the whole Occupy Wall Street Movement. Of course, greed does not fit with the Gospel message, and neither does the sense of entitlement that is become the norm amongst parts of the younger generations. It calls to mind what is written in Acts where all Christians received and were given according to their need. There are many things in our culture that we want but we do not really need (though they really do make life a bit more enjoyable): Cable TV, a high paying easy job, a 1,500 sq ft house, an iPad, a cell phone, and the list can continue.
