Daily homily thoughts, 10/23

Today Jesus challenges us to live simply. Many people seek more and more stuff. They love eBay and Amazon. Then they get bigger barns to house it all.  Jesus reminds us today that our life does not consist in possessions. We come into the world with nothing, and we leave with nothing.  If we have Jesus, we don’t need lots of stuff.  And I’d add this: if we have Jesus, we don’t want lots of stuff. Because in having Jesus we have everything.
