Bishop Robert Barron reminds us to See, Judge and Act.
In the Parable of the Unjust Steward, we see a steward who acted quickly to appease his master’s debtors before he was to be fired, so he can befriend them when he lost his job. Let’s apply this to our spiritual lives: We are the steward of God’s gifts. We have been given these gifts to become saints, worthy of God in Heaven. But, if we are not using them to be saints, we should react as the steward does: See, Judge and Act. We need to make a very clear and honest assessment about ourselves, to be very honest about our relationship with God. Could it be better? If so, then we need to act, immediately, to change our lives. And as God is Mercy, “Love turned towards Sin”, we are constantly given the opportunity to see our shortcomings and always challenged to be better people. Most importantly, we need to take the initiative and act, now, to change our lives.
