Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Do you give out of your surplus or out of your substance?
Our lives are marked by sacrifice. In many ways, Christian sacrifice is taking ordinary things and making them sacred by offering them to God. But if we only offer God our surplus, then the only things in our lives that get transformed are our “extra” things. The core of our life remains unchanged. We can give God our “first fruits”…our first ten percent. Or we can live extraordinary lives by giving God the last ten percent.
