St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 10

"You cannot be the servant of both God and money." (Luke 16:13)

The recent banking crisis showed us that money has become something of an obsession in our society. But Jesus reminds us that the pursuit of profit and the accumulation of wealth fall at the bottom of the values of God's Kingdoms. Mercy and compassion are the yardsticks for Christ's followers. True wealth is when our hands and hearts are open to give, and when we commit ourselves to a God-centred life of kindness and sensitivity to others.

Lord, Help us to appreciate the good things you have given us, and to place you at the centre of our lifes. Amen.
