Sharing our Blessings Week Five Action Item
Week Five Action Item
This is the final action item for
Sharing Our Blessings
. Once you have completed the Sunday reflection, considering the following:
In this Sunday’s reflections, you learned about the rewards of faithful stewardship, both in this life (sharing in God’s happiness now) and in the age to come (eternal happiness in God’s presence). In what ways do you express gratitude to God now for these great gifts?
Consider Sunday in particular, the day on which we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and obey the command to keep holy the Sabbath. How could you reinforce your gratitude to God on this day in a new way throughout the coming year? How can rest, prayer, family gatherings, or even engaging in a creative activity or hobby be a form of thanksgiving?
Now think about revisiting these questions of stewardship in 12 months’ time, when you are a ready. Make a commitment to re-examine your stewardship—your gifts of time, talent, and treasure to God and His people—12 months from today, and make changes as needed to continue your trajectory of a meaningful and sacrificial commitment to the local church. Create a reminder for yourself.
Watch for a reflection email next Sunday from your parish.
