Weekly Reflection

What Possessions Are Controlling You?

10-10-2021We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 46, No. 3

Today we hear of the most familiar saying of Jesus: “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle that for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:25). It astonished the disciples, but perhaps we shrug it off because we’re not “rich”, not part of the ldquo;one percent”. Not so fast! Most of us are actually richer than this rich young man. After all, we have possessions unimaginable two thousand years ago: sturdy homes with electricity and plumbing, SUVs and smartphones, well-stocked closets and pantries and freezers. So maybe our faces should fall as well. Do we need to give away what we have to follow Jesus? How do we gain treasure in heaven while retaining our won earthly treasures? This is the challenge Jesus issues, a challenge that started his disciples murmuring. Let his response console us: “For human beings it is impossible, but...all things are possible for God” (10:27). We may not be able to give up our possessions, but we can always place our trust in a loving and merciful God. In the first reading, Solomon asked God for wisdom over riches. The author of Hebrews assets that the word of God can penetrate our very beings. Let us be guided by God’s word and the Holy Spirit’s wisdom, not driven by our many possessions.

What possessions are controlling your life? What can you give up?

¿Qué Posesiones Están Controlándote?

Hoy escuchmos uno de los dichos más familiares de Jesús: “Más fácil es pasar un camello por el ojo de una aguja, que entrar un rico en el reino de Dios.” (Marcos 10:25). Asombró a los discípulos, pero quizás lo ignoramos porque no somos “ricos”, no somos parte del “uno por ciento”. ¡No tan rápido! La mayoría de nosotros somos más ricos que este joven rico. Después de todo, tenemos posesiones inimaginables hace dos mil años: casas robustas con electricidad y plomería, vehículos deportivos utilitarios y teléfonos inteligentes, armarios, despensas y congeladores bien surtidos. ¿Necesitamos regalar lo que tenemos para seguir a Jesús? ¿Cómo obtenemos tesoros en el cielo mientras retenemos nuestros tesoros terrenales ganados? Este es el desafío que plantea Jesús, un desafío que hizo que sus discípulos murmuraran. Dejemos que su respuesta nos consuele: “Para el hombre es imposible, pero ... todo es posible para Dios”
(10,27). Es posible que no podamos renunciar a nuestras posesiones, pero siempre podemos atar nuestra confianza en un Dios amoroso y misericordioso. En la primera lectura, Salomón le pidió a Dios sabiduría sobre las riquezas. El autor de Hebreos afirma que la palabra de Dios puede penetrar en nuestro propio ser. Dejémonos guiar por la palabra de Dios y la sabiduría del Espíritu Santo, no impulsados por nuestras muchas posesiones.

¿Qué posesiones están controlando tu vida? ¿A qué puedes renunciar?
