Ordinary Time, 18th Sunday (C) I have good news and I have bad news: You are going to die. The good news is that Jesus has the most amazing inheritance ever — and he wants to share it with you! He wants to take your hand and lead you to eternal life. But you can’t take Jesus’ hand if you are clutching riches, vanities, or feuds.
What will your legacy be? Will your funeral reflect faith in Jesus, hope in the resurrection and eternal life, and your love for God and for others? Will you leave a legacy of feuds or forgiveness; selfishness or self-giving; earthly riches or treasure in heaven? It’s never too early to start planning for eternity.
