Proper 24 Yr A—
Spiritual & material gifts

Matthew 22:15-22

The Pharisees went and plotted to entrap Jesus in what he said. . . . But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites?”

From “If we are created by God, and we were created in His image, we must belong to Him. That means we must give ourselves to Him!”

Matt 22:14-22
Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.This week, set aside some time to take inventory of your life. Consider your spiritual gifts. How do you use them in the service of God and others? Consider your material goods. How do you make use of these possessions?
