Paul told those baptised in Christ that they must not surrender themselves to sin. They were living under grace, having been brought from death to life. In their former life, the people were slaves to sin, but once they had been set free from sin by the grace of God in Christ Jesus, Paul encouraged them to become slaves to righteousness. This obedience would come from the heart out of gratitude to God for God's generous love.

Jesus wanted the disciples always to be prepared for his return and be faithful and committed to his teaching. He wanted them to know that the real challenge would come with the passage of time. The lesson for us is that we need to make sure that we live in Christ's love and follow Christ's way every day. We have been given a great deal - the free grace of God - so a great deal will be expected of us. Jesus has taught us how to live, and we must follow his way of love for all if we expect to be welcomed into his kingdom.

Lord, help me to be faithful to You alone.

羅馬書 6:12-18
聖詠 124[123]:1-3,4-6,7-8
路加福音 12:39-48

耶穌給門徒講了管家的比喻,讓他們分辨哪個是忠信及精明的管家。耶穌明顯地在邀請我們每一個人都成為管家,都成為懷著信心去管理好天主所賜予的一切的管家。

第一篇讀經中,聖保祿宗徒在勸告信眾要讓天主成為身體的王。可見,我們的身心靈是天主賜予的最寶貴禮品。為此,我們當留神保護我們的身心靈,不要受罪惡和情慾控制。今天福音的第一句話,叫我們「必要醒寤」,以免在不知覺的時刻失去一切。在這裏,耶穌邀請我們時刻生活在感恩中,用祈禱來獲取戰勝罪惡和情慾的力量,在天主的引導和照顧下,學習保護自己的身心靈,使自己唯獨為主而活。單靠我們個人的力量是無法戰勝罪惡與情慾的,我們要藉著天主的恩寵來保護祂所賜予的一切。用心活出天主給予我們的特恩,我們便可放心大膽地來到天主的跟前,與天主交往,享幸福的生活。

親愛的主耶穌,求祢不斷引領我管理好祢賜給我的一切,並教我時刻懷著一顆醒寤的心,迎向生活中的各種挑戰。
