Our lessons today helped continue the discussion about change and asking ourselves where we go from here. We also heard about using the things we have, not to hoard but to serve God (the love of money is A root of many evils). Our Timothy passage reminds us that having a lot doesn’t always solve problems, often it only delays them. The gospel took a look at Lazarus and the rich man – the way we treat others should be enough to change the minds of those closest to us. Last, Jeremiah was offered the change to redeem his family’s heritage; he did so. Not just for the present but for the future that lies ahead. We are benefactors of the confidence shown by Jeremiah – God is leading us to a place where we will recognize our redemption.
