Prudence for eternity
The dishonest steward achieves some success, but his ultimate destiny is problematic, as Saint Paul reminds us in today’s first reading (Philippians 3:17-4:1):
as I have often told you
and now tell you even in tears,
conduct themselves as enemies of the cross of Christ.
Their end is destruction.
Their God is their stomach;
their glory is in their “shame.”
Their minds are occupied with earthly things.
But our citizenship is in heaven,
and from it we also await a savior,
the Lord Jesus Christ.
May we avoid the traps of those who seem successful but are heading for eternal destruction.
May you and I exercise prudence in this world in ways that lead us to eternal rewards by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
