Gospel Reading: MT 6:24-34

No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other,
or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

As often as we think that we serve the only living God Jesus Christ, we also confront the truth that we are imperfect in overcoming the influence of the world.

In today’s gospel Jesus very clearly highlights the many day to day concerns of man that puts him in direct confrontation with his spiritual needs. All these issues pertain to our daily needs like food and clothing. If these basic needs are becoming a burden for us then we need to assess how particular we are about these needs. As for an individual who is deeply in love with the Lord, the kind of clothing he/she wears or the anxiety of the kind of food he/she eats is nothing more than an inferior quest in comparison to the quest for the Lord.

As we see in the first reading, the deeply spiritual highs that St. Paul experienced, show there is no end to spiritual growth. How then can we stop at small spiritual gains as though it is enough for us?

So then, are we filled enough to say it’s enough? Let us therefore serve God limitlessly so that all our worldliness diminishes in its entirety.
